Redefines work as a good gift from God Most Christians spend most of their waking hours working, yet little has been written of late on the biblical theology and ethics of work. In this brief primer on work in the Bible, Ben Witherington shows that work is neither the curse nor the cure of human life but, rather, something good that God has given to us to do. Unpacks the concept of work and its relationship to rest, play, and worship, showing the place of work in the normal cycle of human life Discusses work as calling, work as ministry, work as a way to make a living, the unbiblical notion of retirement, and more Offers Bible-based insights from Genesis to Revelation
