Principles and Practices for those Called to the Workplace Jan 19, 2010
The 9 to 5 Window is a passionate and well-written book that encourages Christians to serve God wholeheartedly where they spend most of their time - in the marketplace. It offers powerful encouragement to those longing for purpose and spiritual significance in their job. The title of the book involves a reference to a well known mission field, the 10/40 window (degrees latitude north of the equator) which contains the greatest population of non-Christians in the world. The way Hillman looks at it, the marketplace throughout the world is an important field for Kingdom work which is too often ignored. He includes a 10-pg study guide at the end.
The book is divided into two parts. Part I, Understanding the Will of God, talks about the relationship between God and the Workplace, our role in the marketplace in general, and understanding your unique purpose in life. Hillman covers both God's perspective and purpose in bringing the Kingdom to the Workplace, but also the perspective from our level - Christians too often relegated to feeling second-class in our service to God. In Part II, Bringing God's Power into Your Workplace, Hillman passionately shares about the power available for Christians in the workplace who listen for and hear the voice of God, who pray in intercession and who expect God's power to be at work. (Note that Part II will be of greatest interest for those with a charismatic background; others may strongly prefer Part I.) Those sensing a calling to minister within the workplace and who want to see God's power at work there will be encouraged and well advised by reading The 9 to 5 Window.
A Must Have in Your Arsenol! Nov 9, 2009
This book captures exactly what we as Christians may overlook in the work place and that is the powerful presence of God. It is at the work place where we spend most of our time and it's here where we can really be true ambassadors for Christ. The 9 to 5 Window truly captures this element with real life examples and wisdom backed by the Word! Praise God!

Os tell it like it is. Be your best witness in the workplace and get your job does at the same time.... a ministry in the marketplace that gives glory to God and the principles we all learn from the get go.
Practical advice for Christians in business Nov 3, 2006
The book is an easy read, chock full of real life examples of people who have taken the Great Commission into the marketplace. Solidly backed by scripture, it's a practical guide for those of us who want to do something about what we know is right. Encouraging and challenging.
Thank you for an excellent book. Sep 6, 2006
I have now finished this book and would like to thank Os for what he has written. I have read many Christian marketplace books and they usually follow the same theme. But in this case I was particularly impressed. And especially with the chapters on:
* Hearing God * Receiving only from God
I have also been very blessed by Os' daily TGIF Marketplace Meditation.
Os, thank you for everything that you are doing to support and bless us who are called to serve in the marketplace.
