Would you be delighted if, upon pulling into the parking lot of your place of employment each day, you knew you would walk inside and work shoulder to shoulder with Jesus Christ? Or, would it be overwhelmingly intimidating to be working for someone who knew your every thought, your every move, your every ambition?

Such is the situation in Jesus in the 9 to 5, wherein famed motivational speaker and author Dr. Dennis E. Hensley actually allows you to step into a 21st century company being run on a day to day basis by none other than Jesus Christ, himself. You’ll be there as Jesus hires new personnel, establishes company training, and sets a quality control system in place. You’ll observe as Jesus is asked to judge a matter of employee theft, is defied by his employees about business management practices, and is forced to make plans to hand over his business because of his pending departure.

Along with the scenario of Jesus running a company, this book also provides insightful chapters on life management skills, as drawn from the teachings and actions of Jesus. You’ll be shown how to improve your time management practices, your communication abilities, your goal setting and long range planning skills, and even your sales and outreach talents.

With wit, wisdom, and continuous momentum, this book reveals specific ways in which you can enrich your life, expand your personal and business horizons, and add new vitality in reaching your goals and aims in life. It’s also just a lot of fun to observe Jesus in action as the director of a contemporary business operation. So, clock in. Your first day on the job with Jesus is set to get started.
