Do You Know How Much Your Work Matters To God?

A Walmart greeter, a nurse, and an astronaut walk into a church...

They each bring with them their own exhaustion and exasperation, their own uncertainty about how their work matters to God. Good news: All work matters to God, because all work reflects some aspect of his character. He created the world so that it runs best when it mirrors him, and you will find the most fulfillment when you recognize God behind your labor.

John Van Sloten leads an innovative investigation of vocation. It's a fascinating journey that illuminates how your work is a parable of God - as you work, you are an icon of grace.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Explores how Jesus speaks to individuals and to the world using vocation as parable…Van Sloten weaves in vignettes from various occupations that reflect aspects of God’s image in the traits that help people excel in those professions. He delves into what it means to live in the image of God, how work is a parable, what God reveals to people about himself through their work, and how people can become closer to God through work.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “John Van Sloten has sought to understand how God reveals Himself in every aspect of living—specifically in this audiobook, through our jobs…Van Sloten not only shows listeners how but also leads them to plumb the depths of the unseen. His excited yet articulate narration alerts listeners that there is more than merely slogging through one’s daily grind. His ability to show compassion through his voice invites listeners to see God in every job—blue- or white-collar or professional, manual or mental. Every job is a parable that points us to the Creator.”
