Every Good Endeavor
Tim Keller unpacks how biblical wisdom is extremely relevant to address questions of excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion for Christians in the workplace.

Every Good Endeavor seeks to explore the biblical principles that address the value and theology behind work—that is, we work to serve others, not ourselves.
Keller says the Christian view of work is a pivotal foundation to a thriving professional and balanced personal life. He grapples with questions such as, “What is the purpose of work?”, “How can I use my skills in a vocation that has meaning and purpose?”, and “Can I stay true to my values and still advance in my field?”
In all, Keller seeks to remind each Christian of the deep value in their vocation within the Kingdom. With simple, pragmatic advice, he aims to encourage believers to pursue their work with a purpose and joy only available to those working under the God of all creation.
