New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller shows how God calls each of us to express meaning and purpose through our work and careers.

In a work world that is increasingly competitive and insecure, people often have nagging questions: Why am I doing this work? Why is it so hard? Is there anything I can do about it?

Tim Keller, pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now he puts his insights into a book for readers everywhere, giving biblical perspectives on such pressing questions as

– What is the purpose of work?
– How can I find meaning and serve customers in a cutthroat, bottom-line-oriented workplace?
– How can I use my skills in a vocation that has meaning and purpose?
– Can I stay true to my values and still advance in my field?
– How do I make the difficult choices that must be made in the course of a successful career?

With deep insight and often surprising advice, Keller shows readers that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about our work. In fact, the Christian view of work—that we work to serve others, not ourselves—can provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship—not just of self-interest.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JR Taylor | 2/10/2014

    " One of the most important books I've ever read right next to "In, But Not Of" by Hugh Hewitt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 2/7/2014

    " While perhaps not his best book, Keller puts together a book that really is needed by the modern church. Work is an important part of our lives, but churches have not made it clear what the connection between faith and work is. Keller does a great job of showing that road map, so it's definitely worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reagan Ramsey | 2/7/2014

    " powerful reminder that what we do 40+ hours a week says more about us than we think. we have opportunities to serve, to listen, to do good work and most of us only look at it as the way we make the rest of our life possible. what a huge waste to let those opportunities go by where we can do real and lasting good; not that all of us need to move to africa and de-worm orphans, of course. but it made me think of ways I can use my gifts to help, both in the everyday and as part of the vision for our company. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake Belder | 1/28/2014

    " Really balanced and helpful book discussing how Christians should balance their work and the rest of their lives. Would recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Boutry | 1/26/2014

    " Best of theology of work I've read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barnabas Piper | 1/12/2014

    " Just as Keller's book on marriage was the most beneficial I have read on that subject this book is the best I've read on work. Keller is a master at getting to the root of an issue and not getting distracted by the subsidiary issues. This book is encouraging, thought provoking, and well worth anyone's time who has a job or might want one some day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/12/2014

    " Helpful to me. Appreciated Katherine Leary Alsdorf's valuable contribution. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Perez | 1/11/2014

    " I read everything Tim Keller writes. He provides such a wealth of wisdom and knowledge articulated through such a profound, theologically rich & practical exposition of God's Truth. This book is no exception. A thorough review of Work & Common Grace as defined by God; its purpose & design. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 12/29/2013

    " Liked the bit about worldviews. Want to think/read more about that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 12/24/2013

    " The best book I have ever read on work from faith based perspective. Excellent examples and references for working with the right purpose and attitude. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremiah Parker | 10/19/2013

    " Excellent book. Keller continues to impress me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Chapman | 9/19/2013

    " Excellent book on the Christian-work worldview! Full of good theology and lots of practical application. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Troy Austin | 8/22/2013

    " Very insightful book appealing to both believers and non believers of Christ. Addresses many of the concepts from Generous Justice. I strongly believe that believers and non believers should work better together in seeking shalom, as does Keller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 8/11/2013

    " Excellent book for those of us not working in direct ministry, but yearning to find the importance and Biblical significance of our secular work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Varney | 7/21/2013

    " As always an intriguing book by Keller. Bit of a slow starter but really wound up well. The epilogue is particularly inspiring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Land | 4/22/2013

    " This book is one of Keller's best. I have to admit, a book about work is not a read people will find appealing. This is a great gospel-centered, theologically driven book on work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 2/2/2013

    " This is a wonderful book that teaches how to find joy in our work, balance in work, and just overall what it means to be a worker and a Christian. Plenty of deep theological truths but also plenty of practical solutions and ideas to put in practice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeromy Peacock | 1/17/2013

    " This is a must read for every Christian. It is refreshing to hear how your vocation is connected to the gospel and that your work is not just secondary to "ministry". Excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renah | 1/12/2013

    " Really appreciated a lot that this book had to say, especially I get ready to launch a new "career" and move into the world of healthcare. Insightful and thought-provoking. Could probably be more concise/well-written but very much worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wesley Lau | 12/17/2012

    " A very good read to align your mind to the biblical idea of work. "
