Flux and Beyond: From Christian Students to Christian Workers

$12.00

Christian Graduates from diverse cultural and academic backgrounds offer their perspective on issues relating to life after graduation. This book seeks to inspire, instruct and encourage Christians about how to be a more Christ-like Christian worker.

Description

What does it mean to be Christians in the workplace? Is it possible to practice one’s Christian faith in work? Is faith even relevant at all in the ‘secular’ world?

Having wrestled with the issues of life after graduation, these writers seek to inspire those who are still students or fellow fresh graduates, to explore what it means to be a Christian in the workplace. It is a calling to grapple with the tainting effect of sin in the working world and to participate in God’s redemptive purposes for the work He has called Christians to do. The book also offers practical steps for fresh graduates, such as: how to make good decisions, how to cope with the transition between being a student to a working adult, dealing with unemployment, building good support systems, the insidious pitfalls of the working world, the need for self-care, among others.
