Title: Theology of Work Bible Commentary Volume 1 (ToWBC) - Genesis Through Deuteronomy
Available in 5 Volume Set
The Bible has a lot to say about our jobs and careers, but it can be difficult to draw the parallels. This unique commentary, focused on the theology that surrounds your day-to-day work life, can give you the tools to understand and face the moral and ethical demands that you encounter there. This commentary will not provide a set of rules to answer the sticky issues of work, but it will give you direction in coming to your own conclusions. Business, education, law, service industries, medicine, government— wherever you work, in whatever capacity, the Scriptures have something to say about it.
The Theology of Work Bible Commentary represents more than five years of research by 140 contributors from sixteen countries, guided by an international steering committee of twenty scholars, pastors, and Christians from a variety of workplaces.
“The Theology of Work Project is providing desperately needed resources to pastors and the entire church on what the Bible has to say about our work. I hope that every pastor will preach regularly on how the gospel changes the way we work and sometimes the work that we do. And I hope that every Christian will see the ways their work connects to God’s work!” — Tim Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City, Author of Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work
“Did you ever wonder what your work has to do with your faith? The short answer is everything, and now you can read all about it in this Theology of Work Bible Commentary, now in print for the first time. Heartily recommended.” — Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
“This series is a magnificent contribution to one of the most neglected themes in Christian ethics. Avoiding the easy anachronism of finding a few proof-texts that might apply to modern work, the authors let the distinctive voices and broader themes of Scripture illuminate our working life. The conversation about faith and work is deeper and richer thanks to the Theology of Work Project.”
— Andy Crouch, Executive Editor of Christianity Today and author of Culture Making and Playing God
