CFB Bibliography

Vocation & Faith-at-Work


The books below represent some helpful titles on being a faithful presence in the secular workplace, on seeing so-called mundane tasks as divine callings, and helping all members of a local congregation to hold a biblical view of work that glorifies God and demonstrates love to our neighbors. 

Not sure where to start? We recommend beginning with Keller, Every Good Endeavor, as a great introduction into the topic.
