In this volume, Tim Keller turns his focus to the world of work. His assessment is rooted in a Biblical understanding of the essential goodness of work which is contrasted with the burden it has become in a fallen world. These two themes are drawn together and brought to resolution in a deep understanding of the Christian gospel. Keller draws on the theme of idolatry as expounded in Counterfeit Gods: When the Empty Promises of Love, Money, and Power Let You Down, but also introduces new themes most noticeably that of common grace - God's goodness to all humanity.
This is a rich book with many insights to digest. For anyone who wishes to get to grips with the meaning and purpose of work or views their own work as unrewarding or all-consuming, this book will prove a welcome aid to a greater vision of work in the context of the Christian gospel.
