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? And 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 as well as The Skeptical Student in the Encounters with Jesus eBook series, and many others, 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.

Digging Deeper Study Guides are designed to help readers get the most out of their reading by focusing attention on understanding the main message of each book studied. Readers are then challenged to wrestle with that message—do they agree or disagree and why—and then ponder, reflect and apply what they are learning.
Individuals and groups will benefit from these Digging Deeper Study Guides, but the best way to get the most out of any book is by doing both. Start by reading and answering the questions alone and then find a friend or two to gather regularly to discuss what each person is learning. The informed and lively discussion by a group of committed readers will take you places that you cannot go alone. This is the great benefit of learning theology within a community.
