Reviews - What do customers think about Life @ Work?

Life @ Work  Sep 30, 2007
I have enjoyed this book as a bible study with three other guys. The book has some great examples but sometimes Maxwell repeats himself throughout the book. As a bible study this lesson can get long!
Good addition to workplace ministry movement  Sep 10, 2007
I just finished reading John Maxwell's book Life@Work. Maxwell writes about what has been called workplace or marketplace ministry. This idea has been around for a few years prior to Maxwell's book (published in 2005) and written about by folks like Os Hillman. The idea is that we spend most of our waking hours at work. It is an area where we should be "salt and light." However, too often we hesitate to blend our work life with our faith life.

Maxwell looks at four areas: Skill, Calling, Serving and Character. Essentially, he shows through Scripture that our workplace skill is enhanced by God, that we can be "called to the workplace," that serving others is what Jesus models for us all, and that by modeling character we can influence the character of the workplace.

For me the most interesting section was about calling. I know others who struggle with this, and wonder what God's call is for their life, and what his plan is for them. Maxwell outlines different types of calling and provides guidelines to help readers understand whether or not they are following God's call.

Maxwell also challenges the church to help equip Christians for workplace ministry. He calls for a paradigm shift from a "traditional church" to a "work-life" church that is outward focused rather than inward focused.

The Scripture that says we cannot serve God and Mammon is often misunderstood. Other authors have addressed this cleanly. Essentially, it does not mean that you cannot mix your faith life with your work life. I find that actually counter to Jesus' teachings about being a light to the world. What it means is you cannot put Mammon above God. Keeping God from the workplace means you are putting Mammon in charge in the workplace, doesn't it?

I've enjoyed several of Maxwell's books on leadership development. He often uses the lives of Biblical characters as well as stories about real people to illustrate his points. I recommend this book for those who are seeking how to make a difference in their workplace.
Challenges you to look at your job as your calling from God...  Jun 3, 2007
John Maxwell has written a number of outstanding books on leadership and personal improvement. In Life@Work: Marketplace Success for People of Faith (with co-authors Stephen R. Graves and Thomas G. Addington), he tackles the question of where the matter of your personal faith fits in to what you do at work. It's a book that should make every Christian think hard about their personal "calling"...

Notes; About the Authors

For far too long, the matters of your work life and personal calling have been treated as separate and distinct entities. Unless you're a pastor or monk, the issue of serving God with your gifts in the workplace isn't something that gets the attention it should. The authors examine a number of Scripture passages in light of serving in the secular workplace. The conclusion is that you can indeed be called to serve in your daily job without being secluded in a monastery away from society. The book will challenge you to exercise your skills to the highest level possible...
Great Book for Christians to Read to Help with Work Stress  Mar 16, 2007
This book, along with Doug Sherman's book, "Your Work Matters to God," are the two essential books for any Christian wanting to get a right understanding of the theology of work. They are superbly written with a lot of examples and questions to ponder, and I can't recommend both books enough!
Your Career & Ministry Are A Team  Nov 15, 2006
This book teaches whatever your career may be, you are to give your best. I like the phrase, "Being all of who I am and the best of who I can be at church, home, and work."

We are to give our best, after all, our identity comes from Christ. Continually work with positive attitudes, show kindness in our actions, language etc. Take pride in the work you are assigned. Thank God for the job.

We are blessed to have a job. We should strive daily to show love everywhere we go, in everything we do, and everything we say.

When we have a personal relationship with God our career & ministry have meaning!
