This book introduces readers to a basic biblical theology of work. It is written in fourteen engaging chapters, each of which is followed by questions and exercises for small group or individual reflection.
The authors wanted a book that would straddle the divide between theological reflection and practical application in the everyday. In Alistair’s research over the years, he discovered that many people were looking for an easy to read book on the subject, but not one that was lightweight or lacking in credible biblical and theological content. Most treatments were too heavy, academic, long, and inaccessible, or they were largely anecdotal. Where’s God on Monday? is short enough for people to read in an afternoon, written in accessible language for the average person in the pews, yet thoughtful enough to be used as a text in Bible colleges.
Alistair Mackenzie is a senior lecturer in the School of Theology Mission and Ministry at Laidlaw College, New Zealand. In addition to Where’s God on Monday?, he has co-authored with Wayne Kirkland SoulPurpose: Making a Difference in Life and Work, and Just Decisions: Christians Ethics Go to Work. He is the founding director of Faith at Work (NZ), has served as a mission consultant with the Baptist Churches of New Zealand, and participated in the Lausanne Committee’s Marketplace Ministry Issue Group, as well as the Boston-based Theology of Work Project.
