Overview
New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller shows how God calls on each of us to express meaning and purpose through our work and careers.

"A touchstone of the [new evangelical] movement." --The New York Times

Tim Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and the New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now he pulls his insights into a thoughtful and practical book for readers everywhere.

With deep conviction and often surprising advice, Keller shows readers that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about work today. In fact, the Christian view of work--that we work to serve others, not ourselves--can provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship--not just of self-interest.

Editorial Reviews


Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him. --Billy Graham


This is the book I give to all my friends who are serious spiritual seekers or skeptics. --Rick Warren, author of
The Purpose Driven Life, on
The Reason for God


Theologically rich and philosophically informed, yet accessible and filled with practical wisdom. Drawing on decades of study and ministry,
Every Good Endeavor may soon become one of the most important contemporary books on faith and work. --
Comment magazine



Another masterpiece . . . Well-reasoned [and] comprehensive . . .
Every Good Endeavor deftly explains how we can relish and enjoy our work while honoring God and serving others, all the while avoiding the extremes of negativity on the one hand and idolatry on the other. --The Gospel Coalition
Most people sitting in the pews of our churches on a Sunday morning spend more time in the workplace than anywhere else. Yet we can too easily make following Christ a matter of personal devotions and church activity. . . . This is great book on an important area that is too often neglected. --Tim Chester


Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. His first pastorate was in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989 he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has nearly six thousand regular Sunday attendees and has helped to start more than three hundred new churches around the world. He is the author of
The Songs of Jesus,
Prayer,
Encounters with Jesus,
Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering, and
The Meaning of Marriage, among others, including the perennial bestsellers
The Reason for God and
The Prodigal God.

Katherine Leary Alsdorf worked twenty-five years in the high-tech industry as an economic analyst and in various executive leadership positions. After her CEO roles at One Touch Systems and Pensare, Redeemer Presbyterian Church recruited Katherine to lead the church's efforts in marketplace ministry, now called the Center for Faith & Work, which has grown to serve more than two thousand people a year. Katherine has served on the boards of the International Arts Movement, the Fellowship for the Performing Arts, and the Theology of Work Project.
