Work is the place where we spend the majority of our lives- yet it is the place where God is experienced the least.
Experiencing God in Your Work gives inspirational perspectives and practical ideas on how to discover God in the normal flow of your everyday work life. Compelling personal stories, anecdotes, and quotations from both classic and modern Christian thinkers, makes this biblical based guide a great choice for either personal study or group discussion.
"Joe Carroll skillfully addresses the key issues every worker faces - practically, biblically and with understanding of the dilemma of work and life. His writing has the aroma of reality and the empathy of one who has lived what he writes. This is a vital book for everyone who works... "

"As a workplace follower of Christ, Joe brings a unique perspective to men and women who would like to experience the joy of seeing God at work in their work but all too often fall asleep spiritually. Using both workplace and biblical examples, this study will help you awaken to and enjoy Christ's presence in your work."
Bill Peel, DMin Executive Director, Center for Faith & Work at LeTourneau University
"This book looks at how to work effectively and wisely from a myriad of angles. It is loaded with solid practical and biblical advice. It will change the way you work, not just by answering why you work but showing how meaningful work can be."
Darrell Bock, PhD Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies Executive Director for Cultural Engagement, Dallas Theological Seminary
"I know from experience that Joe Carroll lives and writes with the same aim--to help us connect with God in our work. It is easy to see myself in the real world stories he shares. While the book provides God's perspective on work from a Biblical perspective, almost everyone will benefit from the chapters on experiencing God's presence in your work. For me, the chapters on living courageously and living with integrity were the most helpful in giving me perspective for my own work and for the students who ask my advice."
Michael K. Shaub, PhD Clinical Professor of Accounting, Texas A & M University
