“This Book Works”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Dr. Kevin G. Vost
This is not book about beating people over the head with religion within the work setting. Faith at Work will help you find greater purpose and fulfillment in the work you do and fire you up to share the benefits of your faith with others in the workplace. The benefits will overflow also to family and friends as work comes to take its proper place in a faith-filled life. With chapters like “Give me Patience, Quick!”, “An Attitude of Gratitude”, “The Beatitudes of Business,” and “How to Treat the Janitor,” this book is practical, down-to-earth, heartfelt, humorous,and wise. I had the pleasure to read it in advance, and now that I have it in the papery flesh, I’ll be reading it again, one chapter per day every morning before work. This book should go far to take the sting out of Mondays.
