President Andrew Mills Launches Theology of Work Project
New website to explore faith and work
Does the Bible have anything to say about work? A new website, theologyofwork.org, answers emphatically “yes.” Launched on March 18th, the Theology of Work (TOW) Project features over 500 articles and videos that give a Christian perspective on the theological significance of work.
President Mills, Co-chairman of the project, said “I don’t know of any other resource that covers the entire Bible and does it with such a broad team of contributors and editors from across the spectrum of orthodox/historical Christian thought. It provides invaluable insights about God’s plan for work for theologians, pastors and workplace practitioners alike ”
The site aims to equip workplace Christians, and help pastors and church leaders equip their members for life in secular workplaces.
“Often the most interesting resources come from the most unexpected places,” says William Messenger, executive editor of the TOW Project. “Who would have thought that the Song of Songs would have so much to say about workplace relationships and employee satisfaction?” he asks, “or that the best example of a manager in the Bible is the Valiant Woman in the Book of Proverbs?” He adds, “I was surprised that Paul’s discussion about yoking oxen in 2 Corinthians would have so much practical guidance for workplace relationships in business today.”
Over the coming year, the TOW Project expects to expand the website to cover every book of the Bible and the most important topics in contemporary workplaces. All the materials on the website are available free of charge.
The TOW Project’s mission, leadership, processes and history are described at “About the Project” on the website, Messenger says. Click here to visit the Theology of Work Project home page.
