About the Book



"A weekday devotional to help Christians connect the gospel to their vocation and appreciate the eternal significance of their work-no matter what it is"--



Book Synopsis



A weekday devotional to help Christians connect the gospel to their vocation and appreciate the eternal significance of their work--no matter what it is--from the entrepreneur, thought leader, and bestselling author of Redeeming Your Time.

Perhaps you feel as if the work you do carries less eternal impact than the work of a pastor or missionary. But that's not how God sees it. Whatever it looks like day to day, your work is ministry and central to God's plans to restore fallen creation.

As the days of creation reveal, God is quite familiar with work himself. He created humans with unique giftings and interests, specifically so we can pursue his redemptive work in partnership with him.

The Word Before Work features 260 readings--one for every workday of the year--to help you see how your work connects to God's work in the world. The first four weeks set the foundation by exploring:
- what work means in light of the biblical narrative
- why our work matters
- five ways these truths inform how we should work today

The rest of this one-year devotional takes you on a journey through Scripture to explore God's perspective on the work he has called you to do.

Whether you're an entrepreneur, barista, stay-at-home parent, CEO, or coach, The Word Before Work affirms how God created you for work, why it matters, and the ways it holds significance both now and for eternity.



About the Author



Bestselling author Jordan Raynor helps Christians respond to the radical, biblical truth that their work matters for eternity. He does this through his books (The Creator in You, Redeeming Your Time, Master of One, and Called to Create), podcast (Mere Christians), and weekly devotional (The Word Before Work)--content that has served millions of Christ-followers in every country on earth. In addition to his writing, Jordan serves as the executive chairman of Threshold 360, a venture-backed tech startup which he previously ran as CEO following a string of successful ventures of his own. Jordan has twice been selected as a Google Fellow and served in the White House under President George W. Bush. A sixth-generation Floridian, Jordan lives in Tampa with his wife and their three young daughters.
