Reviews - What do customers think about Be successful; be spiritual--How to serve God in the workplace?

Serving God in the workplace  Mar 31, 2008
I feared initially that this would be another irritating book telling me how to be a 'success' or a 'winner' or some other dreadful American obsession. Fortunately it wasn't; instead it was a book about being a Christian in the workplace. Not about using your time at work to evangelise your colleague but instead to work with honesty and integrity, not for greed, and to be a witness in your behaviour.

John Temple's approach to this subject is thoroughly bibliocentric - almost every statement that he makes has a biblical reference to back it up. He gives a few examples of situations in his own working life and in the lives of those he knows to also illustrate his points but the vast majority of his references are biblical. There's nothing wrong with this, of course, but I did feel that a few more 'real life' examples might have helped - and of course he didn't mention the biblical quotes that seem wrong today, such as those about slavery, despite saying that clearly ownership of people is wrong (not something to be found in the Bible).

The author's particular worldview becomes apparent fairly quickly. He's obviously more of a capitalist than a socialist and has a pretty low view of those who exist on benefits; he doesn't appear to mind women in the workplace but did also focus fairly strongly on a woman's role as homemaker "until her children are grown up". He clearly doesn't like the emerging church movement and postmodern ideas although for many people this new expression of church has been a real blessing. He doesn't think people should use the stock exchange for one-off investments. Oh, and he thinks that people should keep working after they retire - not one that would go down well with everyone!

The book is well laid out with plenty of subheadings to the chapters, footnotes, appendices and references to other books on the topic. However there were some occasional problems with typesetting and layout which were a little irritating and showed the book could have benefited from a closer proofing. The author's writing style is clear and easy to read without too much jargon and his arguments are easy to follow. This is a good book but feels in places a bit dour, somehow lacking in the flair that can be found in other books on this subject such as "Thank God it's Monday" by Mark Greene.
