Every Good Endeavor

Keller uses the Bible and a wide variety of other sources to illustrate how the Christian view of work—working to serve others, not ourselves—can provide the foundation for a balanced professional and personal life.

Timothy Keller,

pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan and bestselling author of The Reason for God, has taught people

of all ages on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now,

with Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work, written with Katherine Leary Alsdorf, Keller shows how to find

meaning and purpose for your work. Keller uses the Bible and a wide variety of

other sources to illustrate how the Christian view of work—working to serve

others, not ourselves—can provide the foundation for a balanced professional

and personal life. He shows that faith in God is not mutually exclusive with a

successful career in any field.



In Every Good Endeavor, readers will find

insight for such important questions as: How do I choose a profession that fits

my skills and has meaning? Can I

stay true to my values and still advance in my field? How do I connect what I

learn on Sunday morning with what I do the rest of the week? How do I make the

difficult choices that must be made in the course of a successful career? With Every Good Endeavor, everyone, from

students just entering the workforce to senior level executives, will gain

wisdom on how to have a thriving professional and balanced personal life.

Ministry to the Cities

This volume is a call to action—a plea for believers to work for their Savior by bringing the gospel to the millions of people in the cities of the world.

Jesus’ admonition to “go and make

disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19, NIV) resonates in the hearts of those

who love Him supremely. Every individual must be given the opportunity to

choose between life and death.



This volume is a

call to action—a plea for believers to work for their Savior by bringing the

gospel to the millions of people in the cities of the world. Topics include the

challenges of ministering in the city, strategies, methods, selecting and

training workers, and lessons from Scripture.  The work will require

much effort, especially in our day and age. But Ellen G. White doesn’t mince

words: “Do not hover over the churches to repeat over and over again the same

truths to the people, while the cities are left in ignorance and sin, unwarned

and unlabored for” (The Upward Look, p. 274).



Ellen G. White

(1827-1915) is considered the most widely translated American author. Her works

have been published in more than 140 languages. Although her formal schooling

ended at age 9, she wrote more than 100,000 pages. Guided by the Holy Spirit,

she exalted Jesus and pointed to Scripture as the basis of her faith.
