The world of work is expanding. New technologies, industries and means of meeting apart–and–still–together, have presided in the transition of the workplace into a fast, digital and busier–than–ever era. In whichever sector you care to name, work is increasing exponentially, for reducing rewards and benefits. It is more than easy to complain, drag one’s feet while getting out of the door, and face daily tasks with an apathetic attitude.
A Good Return does not provide maxims to get you through the day. Instead, it is a book that encourages Christians to view their workspace, be it field, car, classroom or office, as an avenue of worship.
John C. Lennox has crafted a book with thoughtful, biblical and evangelical deliberation on our behaviour in, and towards, our work. With his trademark clarity, faithfulness and wisdom, Lennox curates room for a wider discussion on Christian approaches toward salaries, time management, motivation and attitudes amidst a workspace environment.
John C. Lennox is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University of Oxford and Emeritus Fellow in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science at Green Templeton College. He has written many books, including on the relationship between science and Christianity. He has lectured internationally and participated in a number of televised debates with some of the world’s leading atheist thinkers.
This book is dripping with wisdom gleaned both from biblical insights and life experience. It will provide great help, encouragement and joyful inspiration to all who are seeking to apply the Lordship of Christ in all these vital areas of life. -Lindsay Brown, Former General Secretary of IFES and International Director, Lausanne Movement
