The Theology of Work Bible Commentary is an in-depth Bible study tool put together by a group of biblical scholars, pastors, and workplace Christians to help you discover what the whole Bible--from Genesis to Revelation--says about work. Business, education, law, service industries, medicine, government--wherever you work, in whatever capacity, the Scriptures have something to say about it. This edition is a one-volume hardcover version.
This Bible study of Genesis 12-33 contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways.
This study of Genesis follows Joseph from his lowest points to his greatest achievements. The study wrestles with issues such as how to deal with conflict and feelings of futility, what it means to be a leader as a Christian, and how we should discern and follow God's call on our lives. Designed for 30-minute lunch breaks, the study contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions and prayers; it's great for individual or small group study.
