Ever wonder if your daily work really matters? Do you wish your career could truly connect with Christ's mission and the bigger story he's writing every day? Is it possible for you to find deeper satisfaction in your job, greater integration of your faith in your daily work, and stronger connections with co-workers, clients, and other work contacts? In Henry's Glory, Zach and Maggie face a critical crisis in both family and their careers. Old spiritual "ghosts" haunt Zach's psyche, based on his larger-than-life uncle's narrow view of the kind of work that truly glorifies God. Transported across their journey of discovery by a classic old pickup truck and several wise but oh-so-quirky characters, Zach and Mags embark on an intriguing quest for a real sense of calling and greater life purpose in their everyday work. Their story of discovery proves stunning, provocative, and forever perspective-changing. Join the adventure of personal discovery in this captivating story. Henry's Glory supplies a robust blend of humor, biblical/spiritual inspiration, history, romance, mystery, and thought-provoking reflection questions for personal study and group discussion.

Review:

Henry's Glory, while being a great story, has lots for us to learn in how we approach our work. I encourage you to read it and follow the questions suggested between chapters. . . . It will put joy in your heart and a sense of worth in all that you do. When you finish, you will be well on your way to a fulfilling, integrated life in Christ. --Ken Eldred, Author of The Integrated Life

I always felt that my work had meaning. I just did not realize the potential for mission that was surrounding me every day. . . . I now look for ways that I can make a positive contribution to the world through my work--from the simple act of redirecting a negative conversation to discussing the Bible with a colleague. I feel more comfortable sharing my faith and being a positive example for others in my workplace. --Michelle Daggett, Mathematics teacher, Donegal High School

To know and serve Jesus is essential to the Christian life. I love how Dr. Pletcher stirs up our desire to serve Christ in the workplace. This book will challenge you to do exactly that--wherever you work and whatever you do each day. --Doug Funk, Vice President, D.H. Funk and Sons LLC
