Reclaim God's vision for your life.

Many Christians fall victim to one of two main problems when it comes to work: either they are idle in their work, or they have made an idol of it. Both of these mindsets are deadly misunderstandings of how God intends for us to think about our employment.

In The Gospel at Work, Sebastian Traeger and Greg Gilbert unpack the powerful ways in which the gospel can transform how we do what we do, releasing us from the cultural pressures of both an all-consuming devotion and a punch-in, punch-out mentality - in order to find the freedom of a work ethic rooted in serving Christ.

You'll find answers to some of the tough questions that Christians in the workplace often ask:

  • What factors should matter most in choosing a job?
  • What gospel principles should shape my thinking about how to treat my boss, my co-workers, and my employees?
  • Is full-time Christian work more valuable than my job?
  • Is it okay to be motivated by money?
  • How do you prioritize - or balance - work, family and church responsibilities?

Solidly grounded in the gospel, The Gospel at Work confronts both our idleness at work and our idolatry of work with a challenge of its own - to remember that whom we work for is infinitely more important than what we do.

Editorial Reviews


Work is about discipleship and worship. Sebastian Traeger and Greg Gilbert understand this crucial aspect to a biblical understanding of work. In The Gospel at Work, they provide a timely blend of theory and practice. Their instruction is constantly aimed at seeing the gospel fleshed out in business offices, construction sites, restaurants, or wherever else readers are employed. The questions this book tackles prove that the authors are in touch with the common yet difficult questions that Christians wrestle with. Their answers are spot-on and will help bear spiritual fruit in the marketplace.--DAN DUMAS, CEO of Red Buffalo and teaching pastor and elder at Crossing Church, Louisville, Kentucky
