Can I work for an energy company and still be a Christian? This question from a young professional working in the author's London trading department sparked a journey that resulted in this book. Trading With God addresses the relevancy of the Christian faith in today's workplace. Recognizing that Christianity is a 24/7 endeavor, this book provides the framework and tools for the reader to make the critical connection between your actual daily work activities and what God created you to do. This enables Christians to find the most meaning in their jobs and journey of faith.
Trading With God delivers in three parts. First, it grounds readers with history, scriptural references, and summarized concepts of faithful work developed over time by various church theologians. Second, a practical threefold model for Christians is introduced for daily application throughout their working lives. And third, the book builds seven steps to apply this model, which are illustrated by personal stories based upon the author's thirty-four years of professional workplace experiences and theological research. Integrating faith and work using these seven steps can infuse more meaning into any vocation and can transform all workers, as well as the workplace and the wider community.
