Item description for The Church in the Workplace by C. Peter Wagner...

Overview
Wagner explores how the role of the church in the work life of believers is just as much a ministry as what believers do on Sunday in their local churches. He looks at the biblical perspective on work and worldwide examples of the role the church has already played in the workplace.

Publishers Description
If Christians are in the workplace, then so is the church. In "The Church In The Workplace," C. Peter Wagner explores how the role of the church in the work life of believers is just as much a ministry, a service to God and even worship, as what believers do on Sunday in their local churches. A further indispensable step toward activating faith at work is to understand clearly how the extended church operates through the nuclear church and how bridges can be built to join the two. Wagner does just this as he looks at the biblical perspective on work, the Holy Spirit's call to the church to bring about social transformation and worldwide examples of the role the church has already played in the workplace.

Reviews - What do customers think about Church In The Workplace?

Faith and Work Movement Expert?  Jul 14, 2006
It's difficult to be succinct with a review when the book in question covers so much "debatable" ground. This is the case with Wagner's latest, The Church in the Workplace.

To be fair, Wagner seems to have his heart in the right place. He thoroughly believes that the church must be "extended" out of the sanctuary and into the workplace. He echoes the thoughts of many (myself included) when he argues that the "clergy/laity" chasm has done more harm than good and that the one who serves God in the 9-5 is just as much a minister as the professional pastor.

But it's in the details where Wagner throws caution to the wind and comes off very UN-scholarly for a former Fuller prof.

So, before you buy this book, be aware that Wagner is attempting to establish a new way of thinking for many believers, a shift that mimics his own theological journey since leaving Fuller. This new paradigm includes:

1. A shift from premillenial theology (the Kingdom of God is still to come) to Dominion or "Kingdom Now" theology (the Kingdom has already come but the church is not taking advantage of it).

2. A shift in mission for the church (from "making disciples" to "social transformation")

3. A shift in church government (from all current forms to the "New Apostolic Reformation")

4. A shift in economic philosophy (from a cautious and often complex view of biblical economics to a full-fledged, unashamed approach to the "prosperity gospel" endorsed by many Charismatics).

It may be hard to believe for some, but the list above is not hidden between the lines of the text. Wagner boldly and unapologetically seeks to make the case for each of these ideas, often times mutilating key passages of Scripture in the process.

To his credit, though, Wagner admits to being a "doctrinal minimalist" and to being more concerned about "pragmatics" than "theology or exegesis."

So if you're looking for a solid, biblical mandate for the faith@work movement, this is the wrong place to look. Instead, Wagner spends his energy trying to establish a "phenomenological" argument for his theory of why social transformation must take place but has yet to come to fruition. The key, according to Wagner, is power and money. Once "workplace apostles" are in position and wielding their proper "God-given authority," they can begin the process of transferring wealth out of the "world" and into the Kingdom of God.

If the above points inspire you, then you'll love Wagner's book and you should buy it now. If you are concerned by some of the points above, then you might want to drop by your local bookstore to browse through the book before coming back and making your this site purchase.
