When is a job more than a job?

Teaching, selling, writing, nursing, building, repairing, cleaning, managing.... Thousands of jobs demand the time of millions of people each day. For some a job is a joy; for others it is a curse.

For Christians, work is more than just a way of putting food on the table. It is a call from God. We work because God created us with gifts and talents to be used for his glory in the world. But too often the pressures of day-to-day tasks sap our fulfillment.

How can a job enrich a marriage? How can it make life more rewarding for a single person? How can we use time more effectively? How can the church help us fulfill God's call? Judith Shelly looks at these and many other questions as she points the way out of the work delimma. She provides guidelines for seeking God's will, and gives practical suggestions on balancing work with the rest of life.

A book for people who want more from work than just a paycheck.
