Work and Our Labor in the Lord

Full Product Description

"You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you."
--Psalm 128:2

Work has been a part of God's good creation since before the fall--created to reflect his image and glory to the world. What are we to make of this when work today is all too often characterized by unwanted toil, pain, and futility? In this book, pastor, professor, and biblical scholar James Hamilton explores how work fits into the big story of the Bible, revealing the glory that God intended when he gave man work to do, the ruin that came as a result of the fall, and the redemption yet to come, offering hope for flourishing in the midst of fallen futility.

The Short Studies in Biblical Theology series is designed to help readers see the whole Bible as a unified story - culminating in Jesus. Insightful, accessible, and practical, these books are perfect for readers looking for bite-sized introductions to major subjects in biblical theology.

The third volume in the series, Work and Our Labor in the Lord explores how work fits into the framework of the whole Bible - looking at the original creation purpose for work, how it was affected by the fall, and the hope for lasting good offered to all who toil and labor in the Lord today
