Work has been a part of God's good creation since before the fall - created to reflect His image and glory to the world. What are we to make of this when work today is all too often characterised by unwanted toil, pain and futility?
In this book, James Hamilton explores how work fits into the big story of the Bible - revealing the glory that God intended when He gave man work to do, the ruin that came as a result of the fall, and the redemption yet to come. In doing so, Hamilton offers hope for flourishing in the midst of fallen futility.
"Embracing a robust theology framed in the four-chapter narrative of creation, fall, redemption, and consummation, Jim Hamilton skillfully handles the scriptural texts, displaying how human work is a central thread in the biblical storyline... the insights gained will prove inspiring and transformational."? - Tom Nelson, Author, Work Matters; Senior Pastor, Christ Community Church, Overland Park, Kansas
