Every Good Endeavour

Connecting Your Work to God's Plan for the World

By Timothy Keller

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

Do we work to live, or live to work?

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.

Biographical Notes

Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years.

He was asked to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989, and under his leadership the church`s congregation experienced unprecedented growth from 50 to 5000 members. His target audience consists mainly of urban professionals, whom he believes exhibit disproportionate influence over the culture and its ideas.

The `Influentials` Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr. Keller as "the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are `disproportionately influential` in creating the country`s culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms."

Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book THE REASON FOR GOD: BELIEF IN AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine.

Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.

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

Interrupting Silence

Walter Brueggemann
Authors:
Walter Brueggemann

Silence is a complex matter. It can refer to awe before unutterable holiness, but it can also refer to the coercion where some voices are silenced in the interest of control by the dominant voices. It is the latter silence that Walter Brueggemann explores, urging us to speak up in situations of injustice.Interrupting Silence illustrates that the Bible is filled with stories where marginalized people break repressive silence and speak against it. Examining how maintaining silence allows the powerful to keep control, Brueggemann motivates readers to consider situations in their lives where they need to either interrupt silence or be part of the problem, convincing us that God is active and wanting us to act for justice.

'If you're new to the faith and seeking a good orientation, here you'll find the introduction I wish I had been given.

Working with the framework of the church year, they provide a Genesis-to-Revelation overview of the Bible that can be used in a variety of ways: a year of church services, a year of weekly dinner-dialogue gatherings, a year of classes or online interactions, a series of retreats, or simply a rich reading experience.Join Brian McLaren as he explores what it means to be alive in the way of Christ - reading, praying, meditating, discussing and acting our way through God's word to us, the Bible.

You Can Begin Again

Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer

It's never too late for grace. Look closely enough and you'll see that theme all through the Bible. Page after page, story after story--God delights in turning tragic endings into new beginnings. The barren give birth, doubters become deliverers, and harlots are recast as heroes. In every biblical fresh start, we are reminded that with God, new beginnings aren't the exception; they're the rule.Using a blend of inspiring stories, Scriptural principles, and straight-talk, in You Can Begin Again, Joyce Meyer powerfully demonstrates that God isn't done with you yet. If you're stuck in a rut, disappointed by an outcome, hurting from a wound, failing in an endeavour, struggling in a relationship, or unsure about the future . . . don't give up. Don't give up on yourself, and don't give up on the God who loves you. If you thought it was too late, it's not. With God you can begin again.

Never Give Up

Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer

'I encourage you today to fan the flame inside of you. Fan it until it burns brightly. Never give up on the greatness for which you were created. Realize that your hunger for adventure is God-given; wanting to try something new is a wonderful desire; embracing life and aiming high is what you were made for. 'NEVER GIVE UP is classic Joyce Meyer: empowering, motivational, understanding and human. Drawing on the examples of other people who never gave up, Joyce writes on: Never Give Up On Yourself, Never Give Up On The Future, Never Give Up When Success Does Not Come Easily, Never Give Up Hope and The Rewards Of Never Giving Up.
