The Sacredness of Secular Work

4 Ways Your Job Matters for Eternity (Even When You're Not Sharing the Gospel)

Jordan Raynor

About The Sacredness of Secular Work

From a leading voice in the faith and work movement and author of Redeeming Your Time comes the revolutionary message that God sees our daily work—in whatever form it takes—with far more value than we ever imagined.

The Bible tells us our labor is not in vain. But it is exceedingly hard to see how that is true when we’ve grown disillusioned by the fleeting nature of our work and the assumption that evangelism is the only sacred work we do. Bestselling author Jordan Raynor offers an empowering declaration that the time, craft, and care of the business owner, the bank teller, or stay-at-home parent carries an eternal impact far bigger than we think.

Combining research and storytelling, Jordan proves that our work is one of the primary activities that brings God delight, and quality work has potential to physically last into heaven. Through an exponentially bigger view of the gospel and fascinating scriptural insight, Raynor reveals twelve propositions for why work has intrinsic and eternal value, and offers:
  • compelling reasons why a low regard of work hurts our understanding of God and his Kingdom
  • vital truths that God’s view of work tells us about heaven
  • inspiring ways your work can reveal God’s kingdom on earth now
  • accessible methods to make disciples in non-missional jobs
  • surprising strategies to ensure your work has an eternal impact

With this biblically redemptive perspective, readers will feel free to pursue their passions and skills and—perhaps for the first time—experience our Creator’s delight in the work of their hands.
