Most Christians fall into one of two main problems when it comes to work: Either they are idle at work, or they make an idol of work.
Both of these mindsets – idleness in work and idolatry of work — are deadly misunderstandings of how God intends for us to think about our jobs. In The Gospel at Work, Sebastian Traeger and Greg Gilbert unpack the powerful way in which the gospel can transform our work and bring meaning and purpose to it. They answer some of the tough, practical questions that Christians in the workplace often ask, like: What factors should matter most in choosing a job? How should I think about how to treat my boss, my co-workers, and my employees? Is full-time Christian work more valuable than my job? Is it ok to be motivated by money? How do you prioritize – or balance – work, family and church responsibilities? Solidly grounded in the gospel, The Gospel at Work confronts both our idleness at work and our idolatry of work with a challenge of its own – to remember that who we work for is infinitely more important than what we do.
