Tim Keller’s new book is entitled Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work, and Westminster Books is offering a 70% off discount for one week.
Here is the closing paragraph of the introduction—which you can read online for free—Keller sets forth a brief overview of where he is going in this book:
In order to work in this way— to get the consolation and freedom that Tolkien received from his Christian faith for his work— you need to know the Bible’s answers to three questions:
- Why do you want to work? (That is, why do we need to work in order to lead a fulfilled life?)
- Why is it so hard to work? (That is, why is it so often fruitless, pointless, and difficult?)
- How can we overcome the difficulties and find satisfaction in our work through the gospel?
The rest of this book will seek to answer those three questions in its three sections, respectively.
