Theology of Work
This course is also offered as INDS 592
It is unquestionable that work occupies the largest part of our waking everyday life, whether that work is remunerated or not. As distinct from leisure, work is energy expended purposefully, whether manual, mental, or primarily spiritual, whether or not it is remunerated. In this course we examine the contemporary work scene, what the Bible teaches us about work, yesterday, today and forever, and its dignity and problems (east of Eden). We will consider what constitutes good work. Work is an arena for character and spiritual formation and can be part of the advancing kingdom of God and part of the full-time ministry of the whole people of God.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
This January term course takes place on January 6-10, 9:00 am-12:00 pm.
