Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Work: A Kingdom Perspective on Labor

Most Christians spend most of their waking hours working, yet many regard work as at best a necessary evil - just one more unfortunate by-product of humanity's fall from grace.

Not so, says Ben Witherington III, and in Work: A Kingdom Perspective on Labor, he considers work as neither the curse nor the cure of human life but, rather, as something good that God has given us to do.

In Work: A Kingdom Perspective on Labor, brief primer on the biblical theology and ethics of work, Witherington carefully unpacks the concept of work, considering its relationship to rest, play, worship, the normal cycle of human life, and the coming Kingdom of God.

Work as calling, work as ministry, work as a way to make a living, and the notably unbiblical notion of retirement - Witherington's Work engages these subjects and more, combining scholarly acumen with good humor, common sense, cultural awareness, and biblically based insights from Genesis to Revelation.
