Being God's Partner: How to Find the Hidden Link Between Spirituality and Your Work by Jeffrey K. Salkin

What is spirituality anyway? Isn't spirituality about emotion?
And isn't work about the rational mind?

"Too often, we divorce our 'work life’ from our 'real life,’ from our innermost beliefs and convictions. But ‘work’ can be as much a part of our life—and as much a vehicle for spiritual growth and personal understanding—as going to synagogue or church on Saturday or Sunday or taking a walk in the woods or reading quietly to our kids at bedtime. In fact work may be among the most potent vehicles for fulfilling our spiritual life because, for many of us, it presents the best opportunities to meld community and social and economic productivity with personal belief and individual talent."
—from the Introduction by Norman Lear

Being God’s Partner will help people of every faith reconcile the cares of their work and the strivings of their souls—and restore the hidden link between them.

By exploding our assumptions that work and spirituality are irreconcilable, Salkin explores how spirituality can enhance our 9-to-5 lives. "It is time to be as rich internally as we are externally," he writes, offering soul-stirring ways to “smuggle religion” into our workplace.

Thought-provoking, practical and exhilarating, Being God’s Partner goes beyond just talking about the subject to give you specific actions to take and connections to make—right now—to help infuse our lives with greater meaning, purpose and satisfaction—and invigorate all that we do.
