Abstract:

"The twin problems of today's 'high-pressure, burn-out' workplaces and unemployment make some Christian theologies of vocation seem idealistic. The global implications of the West's lust for cheap consumer goods pose major challenges to any moral case for prosperity. In Work, for God's Sake, Esther Reed tackles these questions within a biblical framework, and sketches a theological ethic of work in the hope of God's coming kingdom." Treats "key issues such as vocation, liturgy, social justice, and human rights in the workplace."--Page 4 of cover.
