Every Job a Parable

Every Job a Parable

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.

Reviews

[A] delightful book [that] opens the reader's eyes to God in fresh ways. Packed full of stories, it uses laypeople's terms and experiences to help you grasp a practical theology of work. Looking at faith through the lens of work leaves the reader with a better understanding of the richness of God.
Ruth Walker, Church Times
'Well-crafted'.
Premier Christianity
'This delightful book... grabbed my imagination and my heart, and accessibly gave me fresh insight into the theology of work.'
Church Times
'There's nothing like this in the UK - I'm telling all my friends about it!'
James Maidment Fullard, TWR
'This has been a neglected subject in theology and its reappearance is welcome... An interesting book'.
Methodist Recorder
