Every Job a Parable: What Farmers, Nurses and Astronauts Tell Us about God [9781473670662]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'I have a hunch that thousands of people are waiting for this book, as they struggle to translate God into the language of the cultures that constitute most of their waking lives. John Van Sloten shatters the sacred-secular divide, repositioning work as worship, and glory in the normality of the mundane. This is a message that really could revolutionise your relationship with God, but be warned that it will do so very quietly.' Pete GreigA farmer, a nurse and an astronaut walk into a church...They each bring with them their own exhaustions and exasperations, their own uncertainty about whether and how their work matters to God. Good news: all work matters to God, because all work reflects some aspect of the character of God. God created the world so that it runs best when it mirrors him, and we ourselves find the most fulfilment when we recognize God behind our labour.John Van Sloten offers a fascinating and innovative reflection on vocation: our work is a parable of God; as we work, we are icons of grace.


AUTHOR: John Van Sloten is a pastor, teacher and writer who lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. For the past 20 years he's been exploring a worldview that seeks to discern God's voice in all things: the Bible, the arts, sport, science, film, music, literature, history, maths, nature and human nature. John's first book, The Day Metallica Came to Church: Searching for the Everywhere God in Everything (Square Inch, August 2010), listened for God's whispers in pop culture. John has been the recipient of two John Templeton Foundationgrants, exploring the intersection of faith and science in the context of preaching.
