Workship: How to Use Your Work to Worship God

Kara Martin

$21.99

Paperback

Shortlisted for 2017 Australian Christian Book of the Year

"The Hebrew root word for 'work' is also the root word for 'service', particularly service to God in worship. By combining the two English words, 'work' and 'worship', I hope to challenge people to integrate their faith and work. Work does not just refer to what is done in paid employment. I believe God sees work as any purposeful activity requiring focus and effort. It could be housework, schoolwork, caring for children or parents, study, paid work, voluntary work, etc." - Kara Martin

In her book, Kara explores the biblical view of work, provides six spiritual disciplines to integrate faith and work, shares practical wisdom on how to make a difference in the workplace, and offers ideas to help churches better equip their congregations to live out their faith at work.

"This is an immensely helpful book. If you've heard that work for the Christian is just the place to do evangelism, or make money to support real Christian ministry, then read this book and think again. I feel blessed as a preacher, teacher and pastor by this book, but more importantly, I feel blessed as a worker for having read it."
- Richard Condie, Bishop of Tasmania

"It's like a mini-retreat... Prayer and probing questions help transform her compelling words into actions. Having retreated and reflected, we can engage in the active life again, reinvigorated and empowered to engage the work-world."
- Gordon Preece, Director of ETHOS: EA Centre for Christianity and Society, and also minister of Yarraville Anglican Parish, Melbourne.
