James is jam-packed with wisdom for Christians who want to truly apply their faith to everyday life. James and Work takes its readers through the whole letter, with a particular focus on this question: How might we apply the wisdom of Scripture to the way we behave in the modern marketplace?
The study addresses questions such as:
- What does it really mean to trust God with our work?
- What should businesses look like when Christians turn their faith to action?
- What does the Bible say about the way we treat our workmates, our customers, and our investors?
- What does the Bible say about business planning, self-promotion, water-cooler gossip, and the wages we pay employees?
Twenty-four short studies, grouped into eight weeks or chapters, are perfectly suited to a workplace lunch-hour study group, a church group of workers interested in how to live out their faith from Monday to Friday, or as a personal pre-work devotion.
The Theology of Work Project is an independent, international organization dedicated to researching, writing, and distributing materials with a biblical perspective on work. Its mission is to help people explore what the Christian faith can contribute to ordinary work, and it is developing resources for the most significant topics in today's workplace, such as calling, ethics, truth and deception, motivation, compensation, and more. Books created by the Theology of Work Project include the "Bible and Your Work Study Series," and the "Theology of Work Bible Commentaries."
