Product Description An in-depth historical, philosophical, theological--and practical--exploration of work from an evangelical perspective. Hardy discusses several historical views of work from the ancient Greeks onward, highlighting the Christian concept of vocation as articulated by Luther and Calvin; these expositions lead to practical applications regarding the personal issue of career choice and the important (but often neglected) social issue of job design. From Library Journal Hardy looks creatively at the meaning of work according to Greek, medieval, Renaissance, Marxian, and Freudian perspectives, then at Luther's view and subsequent Calvinist development and modification, concluding with contemporary Roman Catholic convergence. The second half of the book applies the theory to personal career choice and social job design; it then reviews seven management theories and ends with perceptive remarks about combining people-oriented choices and profit choices. Highly recommended. Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review Theology Today "This book is useful for those who seek to understand and interpret work in the modern world. It gives a realistic understanding of the complexity of the workplace and the complexity of working. . . It raises both the personal and the social and systematic issues surrounding work. It addresses those looking to enter the world of work, those already at work, those whose work is not paid work or employment work, and those who have responsibility for the form and character of the workplace." About the Author Professor of philosophy at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has written articles in the areas of philosophy and the theology of vocation.
