The time has come for us to see a purpose for business that goes beyond money and that has a vision for this economy that goes even beyond this earth. Built around twelve themes: calling, leadership, character, success, money, stewardship, balance, disciplines, relationships, pluralism, ethics and giving, Work as Worship opens our collective eyes to the spiritual nature and mission of our daily work. Written by respected business leaders from well-known brands (Hobby Lobby, Interstate Batteries, PepsiCo, TOMS Shoes, etc.), Work as Worship creates a space for ongoing community and conversation on these important issues.

Review:

I firmly believe that almost anytime you see a systemic problem corporately, nationally, or internationally, somewhere in the link it will fall upon the leader. If ever there were a time when the world needed leadership defined by integrity and character, this is it. The truths here are drawn from those who have learned how to withstand great challenge and to excel not only in leadership, but moreover in life as well. This book is a valuable resource that you will want to share with others. --Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker

Mark Russell has done a masterful job of telling the stories of key Christian leaders who have been called to the marketplace as business executives. I love the practical wisdom collected from these leaders who are blessing those they touch while living and expressing the truth about how God created everything to work. This book truly reveals the sacredness of business lived out by followers of Jesus. --Durwood Snead, Pastor of globalX at North Point Ministries and former business executive
