Every Job a Parable: What Farmers, Nurses and Astronauts Tell Us about God (Paperback)John Van Sloten (author)
- We can order this
'I have a hunch that thousands of people are waiting for this book, as they struggle to translate God into the language of the cultures that constitute most of their waking lives. John Van Sloten shatters the sacred-secular divide, repositioning work as worship, and glory in the normality of the mundane. This is a message that really could revolutionise your relationship with God, but be warned that it will do so very quietly.' Pete Greig
A farmer, a nurse and an astronaut walk into a church...
They each bring with them their own exhaustions and exasperations, their own uncertainty about whether and how their work matters to God. Good news: all work matters to God, because all work reflects some aspect of the character of God. God created the world so that it runs best when it mirrors him, and we ourselves find the most fulfilment when we recognize God behind our labour.
John Van Sloten offers a fascinating and innovative reflection on vocation: our work is a parable of God; as we work, we are icons of grace.
