Description

Work is something everyone - or almost everyone - does, even if it is without remuneration. We spend most of our waking hours doing it. But what does it mean? Does it bear any connection with the coming of the Kingdom of God - even if it is not a stated Christianity ministry? Why work at all? And why work hard or heartily? And how can we go about integrating our faith with our daily work? These are the questions Bruce Waltke and Paul Stevens will be addressing from both the Old and New Testaments, especially the passages that express the wisdom of God on matters of daily life. Lecture Titles are as follows;

  1. Work: Yesterday, Today and Forever by Paul Stevens
  2. The Sluggard in Proverbs by Bruce Waltke
  3. The Enterprising Woman in Proverbs 31 by Bruce Waltke
  4. Taking Your Soul to Work by Paul Stevens
