Difficult boss; annoying colleagues; boring work? Asked to work harder and harder; told by your manager to lie; tempted to do something bad? This book helps you think through the calling to be a Christian at work by showing how God can be unexpectedly present even in the most difficult people and dilemmas. Work can become a place where you can exercise your talents, positively influence your business, and be a witness to Christ just by being who you are.
About the Author
William Morris is Director of Global Tax Policy at General Electric, he also chairs the CBI Taxation Committee. He was ordained as a priest in the Church of England in 2010. He has degrees in history, law and theology, and is the author of 'Where is God at Work?'
"Will Morris writes like he lives: with economy, understatement, humour, integrity, and a good deal of mischief. If his subject was straightforward, others would have dealt with it thoroughly and well, and it would be off the desk. They haven't; and it isn't: and that's why we are immensely in Will Morris' debt that he has given us an example to follow, a vocation to pursue, and a word to enjoy." -- Dr Samuel Wells "This book is full of carefully crafted practical wisdom, born of long experience in the workplace and deep reflection on the riches of Christian theology and spirituality." -- Graham Tomlin "A refreshingly honest illustration of the workplace challenges. Morris fluently combines wit, positivity and lessons in which our business lives can coexist with our faith and morals" -- John Cridland, Director General of the CBI "When I was a Treasury minister, Will Morris was an exceptionally thoughtful and helpful lobbyist. Now he is ordained, too. His exceptionally thoughtful and helpful book explains how paid work can be part of a life intended to honour Christ." -- Stephen Timms, MP "This warm, measured, generous book not only offers a wealth of helpful biblical insight into the contemporary office world but above all reminds, inspires, encourages us to work for the God of surprise in the confident and expectant, but never triumphalistic, trust that there is no workplace, no situation, no challenge beyond His concern or kingdom touch." -- Mark Greene, London Institute for Contemporary Christianity `Christian reflection on the world of work and the challenges it poses has regularly suffered from one or other, and occasionally both, of two problems - it is often written by those who are fundamentally suspicious of business in its various forms, and not necessarily well informed about the realities of the workplace. Will Morris speaks and writes with the authority of someone who knows the life of the modern business office from the inside, and who approaches work as something in which Christians may find a vocation. As such, he offers invaluable wisdom and encouragement to those who are seeking to discern Christian meaning and responsibility in their life at work.' -- Dr Michael Banner, Dean and Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge "I do not always agree with Will Morris but on a fundamental issue we are in total agreement; you either take your faith to work with you or you're not putting it to work. This book challenges on that issue in innovative ways and I recommend it." -- Richard Murphy, Tax Justice Campaigner "Everyone who has prayed about their work will appreciate how Will Morris brings out God's creation in every aspect of the workplace, and shows how we can participate in that creation through the daily challenges, dilemmas, frustrations, pains and joys." -- Dave Hartnett, Blueprint for Better Business and former Permanent Secretary for Tax, HMRC
