Book Reviews on Work
To find work that perfectly fits our callings is not a right, but a blessing.
Pastors may find God at Work to be a useful tool as they translate theological language related to sanctification into laypeople’s vernacular.
This book is a helpful introduction to the subject of vocation in Christian theology.
This book would be a good starting point for pastors wrestling with how to equip their people to live as disciples of Jesus around the clock.
Stevens writes with years of experience and knowledge of Scripture, and though you might not agree with everything, there will be plenty to ponder about our gracious God.
Other Book Reviews
Center Church is Tim Keller’s magnum opus.
This book is instructive, encouraging, and convicting. I am happy to recommend it.
I know the authors mean well, but the church does not need more doctrinal ambivalence and suspicion of preaching to carry on faithfully in the world.
