Product DescriptionWhat Can Blue-Collar Business Teach Us About Work and Faith?The faith and work conversation is alive and well, but most resources focus on white-collar jobs, neglecting the majority of the workforce. When Pastor Dave Hataj realized he needed to go home and take over the family gear shop, he didn?t expect it to become a spiritually transformative season of his life. Yet as he began to think about what it meant to be a Christian in business, he discovered just how much our work matters to God and how blue-collar business can change people, communities, and even the world.Drawing on the stories of his business, Edgerton Gears, Dave teaches you how to cultivate true inner goodness, meaning, and mission at work-no matter what you do. Your workplace can and should be a place of significance.ReviewPraise for Good Work?Work relationships must survive through both boom and bust times, Hataj points out, and how one reacts to adversity can help spread Christianity within one?s workplace and communities. One memory about his father?s overcoming prejudice to treat customers well is particularly affecting. He also lauds the ?three-legged stool? of business-quality, value, and service-and gives tips on leadership and customer service that can benefit all workers. Christians who struggle with wondering how to serve God will find Hataj?s impassioned testament quite persuasive.? -Publishers Weekly?Dave?s story and choices narrated in Good Work are a message that followers of Jesus would do well to ponder. In an age where Christians have such a poor reputation, his simple message of us seeking first His kingdom and true inner goodness and living that out in our workplaces will do a whole lot to make our faith relevant and the ?gospel? actually good news. ?-Andrew CampbellOwner of Beaverhill Woodcrafters, Plain, WA?A machinist with a doctoral degree-you don?t meet one of those every day. Nor will you often find a book that so effectively demonstrates the hand-in-glove relationship between faith and everyday work. In Good Work, David Hataj has given us a wide-open window into his years of experience in the ?real world.? Hataj meshes making gears with serving God-not merely in theory but in actual practice. His story traces the painful path he traveled to make that faith-work connection. Good Work will expand your outlook on family health, meaningful work, integrity in business, mentoring, and bridging the generation gap.?-Larry PeabodyProfessor, Theology of Work, Bakke Graduate University; author, Job-Shadowing Daniel: Walking the Talk at Work?You will want to pass Dave Hataj?s Good Work on to every small business owner, especially those in the trades. Kingdom impact is possible in blue collar business. Dave?s secret sauce to integrating faith in the workplace is ?DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU ARE GOING TO DO!!!? I could not put the book down, reading it all in two sittings. I resonated with what Dave has to say-my father was a machinist and also a pastor, both in church and in the machine shop. It felt like Dave was in the room with me all the time reminding me that God is infinitely more concerned with who we become than with what we accomplish.?-Willy KotiugaChair, Bakke Graduate University Board of Regents?As a business professional, church elder, men?s ministry leader, and personal friend, I can testify that Dave is a man that truly lives the words of Jesus, ?You are the salt of the earth? and ?the light of the world . . . that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven? (Matt 5:13-16). Dave and his life story in Good Work is the application our men?s ministry has spent years trying to teach men; our workplace and business is the mission field and not a secular job. Good Work is now our handbook.?-Greg KingChief Experience Officer, ExponentHRElder, Trinity Bible Church, Richardson, TX?Get ready, Good Work is going to challenge who you are not only in the workplace, but in your community, famil
