Do you see time spent at work as a hindrance to your faith?
Are you too busy and anxious at work to be conscious of God's presence?
Too tired and drained outside of work to focus on the needs of your soul?
If so, it's time to start Taking Your Soul to Work.

R. Paul Stevens and Alvin Ung tap into the wisdom of the Bible and the Christian spiritual tradition -- and also draw on their own varied experiences in today's global business community -- to redefine the workplace as an arena for personal spiritual growth. Together they discuss real-life dilemmas and give practical guidance on turning professional work into the catalyst for a richer, more balanced spiritual life.

In these brief, conversational chapters -- each rounded out with an action plan or a case study plus exercises for further reflection -- you will discover
  • The nine deadly sins of the workplace ("soul-sapping struggles at work")
  • The ninefold fruit of the Spirit that can meet our workplace needs
  • The nine positive outcomes of integrating spirituality and work
