Faithful Work in a Challenging World

Have you ever been frustrated in your attempts to integrate your faith life with your work life?

Walking through the stories of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther, three types of faith are demonstrated that can be used in a secular work environment: idealized faith, pragmatic faith, and clever faith. Using the examples of these three Old Testament leaders, you will be able to see how even in a hostile world God’s work can be completed through his strength and the faithfulness of his people. The material provides you with the context of these stories, ideas of how to implement these faith styles into your own work, and times of reflection and practice.
