Your workplace may involve a tyrannical boss, or ghastly colleagues; tedious work; unforgiving hours; meagre pay. Yet God can work in these situations. Will Morris proposes that we take another look. Our work context can be where we exercise responsibility, and cut square corners, behave ethically; where we can care for those in need - our fellow workers may be starving for respect, or kindness; where we can reach out to those trapped by debt, family commitments, or ambition. The workplace can be where we are able to exercise our talents, to create employment for others, to ensure that each corporate decision is just that bit better than the one before. It can also be a context for mission. It is hard to hide at work: your colleagues probably know you well, and you can be a witness to Christ just by being who you are. This book is wonderfully thoughtful, positive and practical, and filled with observations and anecdotes from the author's own career in a demanding business world.

William Morris

Morris was the Victorian Age's model of the Renaissance man. Arrested in 1885 for preaching socialism on a London street corner (he was head of the Hammersmith Socialist League and editor of its paper, The Commonweal, at the time), he was called before a magistrate and asked for identification. He modestly described himself upon publication (1868--70) as "Author of "The Earthly Paradise,' pretty well known, I think, throughout Europe." He might have added that he was also the head of Morris and Company, makers of fine furniture, carpets, wallpapers, stained glass, and other crafts; founder of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings; and founder, as well as chief designer, for the Kelmscott Press, which set a standard for fine book design that has carried through to the present. His connection to design is significant. Morris and Company, for example, did much to revolutionize the art of house decoration and furniture in England. Morris's literary productions spanned the spectrum of styles and subjects. He began under the influence of Dante Gabriel Rossetti with a Pre-Raphaelite volume called The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems (1858); he turned to narrative verse, first in the pastoral mode ("The Earthly Paradise") and then under the influence of the Scandinavian sagas ("Sigurd the Volsung"). After "Sigurd," his masterpiece, Morris devoted himself for a time exclusively to social and political affairs, becoming known as a master of the public address; then, during the last decade of his life, he fused these two concerns in a series of socialist romances, the most famous of which is News from Nowhere (1891).
