A Biblical Theology for What You Do Every Day We spend 50 to 75 percent of our waking hours and 60 to 90 percent of the years of our lives working. Yet many of us never invest even a fraction of that time exploring the vision that drives our lives and work. In this follow-up book to Discipling Nations, Darrow Miller helps us to reconnect our lives and work, our LifeWork, with God's plan for individuals, communities, and nations. This is a carefully researched, down-to-earth, life-altering book that every Christian should read.
We've lost the framework in which it is understood that our lives and work are in relationship - in relationship to God through worship, to others through service, and to creation through stewardship. Our lives and work have largely been separated from their mission, and this ultimately stems from a loss of the biblical worldview. 'LifeWork' lays out the thought background for each of us to establish a meaningful, integrated understanding of our life and work. Whatever our work or vocation, God calls each of us to a new way of living - fully in His presence.
I'd like every student to read Darrow Miller's chapters on worldviews at work and the need to battle dualism and the sacred-secular dichotomy. He brilliantly shows how to live and work before God and why it's so important to grasp the biblical theology of vocation. His summary of the Bible's essential metanarrative is pitch-perfect, and his application of that to cultural pursuits is exactly what those who waver need to hear. --Marvin Olasky, Editor-in-Chief, WORLD
Against the narrow, individualistic conception of the gospel that unfortunately gets preached in many evangelical churches, Miller offers the biblically accurate and exhilarating description of the gospel of the kingdom. Miller paints a picture of how to connect all of our life and work now to our glorious future on the New Earth. LifeWork enlarges vision and passion for taking up our high calling of culture making, joining King Jesus on his mission of healing our broken planet. --Amy L. Sherman, Director, Center on Faith in Communities
