The Other Six Days: Vocation, Work, and Ministry in Biblical Perspective based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Steven's book is thought-provoking but somewhat technical. The materials are probably too difficult for beginning college classes, would fare better in upper level classes, and would really connect in graduate classes, or with seminary students, or with those well-grounded in theology. Chapter 5 shows the honorable and godly nature of work and chapter 8 shows biblical parallels in God's sending people for mission; these chapters were especially strong. The entire book might be summarized with a paraphrase of John the Baptizer's words, 'The laity must increase while the clergy must decrease.'
