Mastering Monday: John Beckett
Christians can keep their church and working lives in separate compartments. They may want and even try to live for Christ in the office, factory or school, but somehow what they learn on a Sunday seems not to bear on what they are doing on Monday. Is being a Christian at work any more than not swearing or stealing paper clips? This book is a bold call to transform the workplace into a place where the kingdom of God is experienced. Beckett recounts some of the struggles he has encountered during his long career in business and management, and how they have enhanced his understanding of his faith and work. He introduces several biblical characters as role models for living out faith in the workplace, and focuses on five themes where biblical truths and business realities intersect. He weaves three principles into his workplace agenda: a personal relationship with the Lord, a closer alignment of faith and work, and the multi-faceted expression of God’s kingdom. Throughout the book, he grounds these ideas in Scripture and applies them in practical ways to the working lives of his readers.

Wrestling with God- Loving the God we don’t understand: James Emery White
If God wants a relationship with us then why is he so distant? If God loves his creation then why is there so much pain? If God is good then why does he plan to consign people to hell? We give ourselves to God and then struggle profoundly with the relationship. But instead of embracing our doubts and confusion we often deny them to ourselves and others. Sometimes we make things worse either by feeling guilty about our struggles or by dismissing them as unimportant or insignificant. We may choose to live on the surface of faith, or become resentful that God does not simply step in to clear up the confusion. This book explores the difficulties all Christians face – of heart, soul, mind and strength, and the struggles to love our neighbour as ourselves. He grapples honestly with our tough questions and disappointments, and helps us take our angers and fears back to the God who loves us.

In the Company of Jesus: Bill Donahue
What images come to mind when you hear the name “Jesus”? Religious icon? Mystical guru? Maybe he’s the figure in the stained-glass window at church, or in the painting hanging in the hallway of your grandmother’s house. Bill Donahue spent years asking these questions, and the Jesus he eventually met was not merely an ancient sage but the living, breathing Son of God. He found himself captivated by Jesus’ teaching, embraced by his love and disarmed by his grace. And so in this book, the author brings to life the many facets of who Jesus is and what his work in the world is all about. Written in forty brief segments with opportunities for personal reflection and dialogue with God, In the Company of Jesus makes ideal daily reading. This book is a companion to the Jesus 101 series and elaborates on the ideas found in those studies.
