This revised edition is fun, fast and full of stories.
It is a highly practical book that helps you in: looking at making the most of the time we spend at work; examining our jobs, colleagues and bosses from God's point of view; and, expanding the 'spiritual' part of life from the weekend to the workplace and understanding that God is at work there through us, in us, and in those we work with.

Excellent book, tackling areas that most sermons don't, and with good stories and passion.
Review by sainsborough
I met the author in February 2009, when one of my rather sporadic attendances at church co-incided with him being there to speak. That was fortuitous - what he had to say had enormous impact on me. Firstly, how often does someone come to church to talk about working life? Ironically, he was speaking to a rather bemused congregation of retired people, but I was the rapt exception. I often find that at church you are obliged to fit into one of the following categories: old folk, families, teens, tots, men who attend the men's breakfast, and women who attend the weekday coffee mornings. As a childless woman with an all-consuming job, I fit into none of the above, so I feel slightly alienated from church society. The author says churches tend to be too inward-looking, when there is a vast platform for ministry in the networks of contacts all working people have.I have to say I'm finding the book not quite as impressive as Mark Greene's own dynamic delivery, but that doesn't mean to say it isn't an inspiring read. I would be striping it all over with highlighter pen, if it weren't for the fact that I intend to lend it to EVERYONE once I have finished it, and I don't want to prejudice their impressions.
Review by SueinCyprus
Fairly interesting, looking at the importance of living as a Christian in the workplace - having integrity, being a living witness, showing respect and fairness, etc. Nothing particularly new and startling, but some interesting anecdotes. Worth reading.
