Overview

This is a book, first and foremost, about God. This is a book about the passionate love He has for His children and the interest He shows in their work, described through the lives of those that are living for Him. If there is anything impressive about the stories in this book, it is God Himself. Through the testimonies of twenty-four young professionals, you will find honest accounts of how they have wrestled with what it means to be a Christian in the industries God has placed them in:


• Finding meaning and purpose at work
• Being content with the present yet being ambitious for the future
• Discerning God’s will for what work to do
• Balancing work, family and church commitments
• Being on mission at work

If you are just about to start your career; if you are at a bit of a crossroads in your career; if you want to explore more of what it means to be a Christian; in your workplace or if you just want to be encouraged by the fact that God is at work in our workplaces and through our careers, then this book is for you.
