This profoundly biblical exposition of what it means to be a child of God at work in the world is both enlightening and inspiring. The authors note the necessity for Christians to recover the meaning of vocation—to understand that their work is not primarily for their own benefit, but for God’s glory and the common good.
Such an understanding is undergirded by the hope that “every good endeavor, even the simplest ones, pursued in response to God’s calling, can matter forever.” Especially helpful is the discussion on common grace and how God providentially cares for and blesses his world through the work of Christians and unbelievers alike.
