Working in christ

A Biblical theology of work rooted in union with christ

Book Summary

What is been attempted in this paper is to frame work in the biblical narrative of union, disunion, reunion, and perfect union, with a special emphasis on identifying the theme of common union and common mission in both Testaments.

 

Work is a gift given to God’s image-bearers for the good of the entire creation; though it causes frustration, is used flippantly and maliciously, and seems a necessary evil at times, it is redeemed and restored through Christ’s work and given back to humanity renewed for God’s kingdom purposes.
