In today's increasingly competitive and insecure economic environment, we often question the reason for work: why am I doing this? Why is it so hard? And what can I do about it? Work may seem just a means to an end: we do it to earn the money to enjoy life outside the workplace. Here, Timothy Keller argues that God's plan is radically more ambitious: he actually created us to work. We are to work together to make the world a better place, to help each other, and so to find purpose for our lives. Our faith should enhance our work, and our work should develop our faith.With deep insight, Timothy Keller draws on essential and relevant biblical wisdom to address our questions about work. There is grace available if we have taken the wrong attitude, idolising money and using our careers to glorify ourselves rather than God. This book provides the foundations for a work-life balance where we can thrive both personally and professionally. Keller shows how through excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity and passion in the workplace we can impact society for good.Developing a better attitude to work releases us to serve others humbly, to worship God everyday, and leaves us deeply fulfilled.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians. * Christianity Today magazine *
Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him. * Billy Graham *
Every Good Endeavour is the most accessible book integrating a distinctively Christian perspective to our daily work. Moreover, Keller winsomely speaks to non-Christians who are trying to make sense of the frustrations and pleasures of their working lives. Every Good Endeavour is an excellent read for anyone seeking a better understanding of how faith can be, and should be integrated into their work. It's whole-life-discipleship at its clearest. Great insight, theological engagement and practical application. -- Johnny Douglas * Together Magazine *
Here we see the theological being eminently practical, and the practical always being theologically rooted. * Inspire Magazine *
Ever wondered if it is worth getting up on a Monday morning? If so, this book is for you...a readable and authentic book...backed up by sound theology. * Christianity Magazine *
This is for all those who seek to find meaning in their work. It blows apart the myth that unless we are involved in full time Christian service we are not fully serving the Lord. * Reflections *
