What is spirituality anyway? Isn't spirituality about emotion?
And isn't work about the rational mind?

"Too often, we divorce our 'work life’ from our 'real life,’ from our innermost beliefs and convictions. But ‘work’ can be as much a part of our life―and as much a vehicle for spiritual growth and personal understanding―as going to synagogue or church on Saturday or Sunday or taking a walk in the woods or reading quietly to our kids at bedtime. In fact work may be among the most potent vehicles for fulfilling our spiritual life because, for many of us, it presents the best opportunities to meld community and social and economic productivity with personal belief and individual talent."
―from the Introduction by Norman Lear

Being God’s Partner will help people of every faith reconcile the cares of their work and the strivings of their souls―and restore the hidden link between them.

By exploding our assumptions that work and spirituality are irreconcilable, Salkin explores how spirituality can enhance our 9-to-5 lives. "It is time to be as rich internally as we are externally," he writes, offering soul-stirring ways to “smuggle religion” into our workplace.

Thought-provoking, practical and exhilarating, Being God’s Partner goes beyond just talking about the subject to give you specific actions to take and connections to make―right now―to help infuse our lives with greater meaning, purpose and satisfaction―and invigorate all that we do.

From the Publisher:

A book that will challenge not only Jews caught up in the hustle and the hassle, the distractions and desperations of the occupational world, but everyone of whatever denomination concerned about making sense out of life.

Andrew M. Greeley, Prof. of Social Science, University of Chicago

His is an eloquent voice, bearing an important and concrete message....Engaging, easy to read and hard to put down and it will make a difference and change people.

Jacob Neusner, Distinguished Research Professor of Religious Studies, University of South Florida

From the Back Cover:

But spirituality is more than feeling that you have been temporarily lifted from the mundane world. Spirituality is active as well as passive. This means that we search for and intentionally create moments and possibilities in which our eyes open to a reality that is beyond us, yet very much a part of us. No wonder many of us have trouble relating spirituality to work. If we think that work is active, and that spirituality is passive, how can work be spiritual? But if we realize that we can be active agents of God in the world, then we can fulfill some of our Jewish duties even while we re on the job.
