#ad
Wipf & Stock Pub #ad - He exhaustively explores the nature of work in both capitalist and socialist societies and considers a variety of work, political, medical, including industrial, agricultural, and artistic work. He denies that one is "called" to do a particular work irrespective of one's inclinations, instead, and asserts, that it is our privilege to do the kind of work for which God's spirit has gifted us.

. In work in the spirit, miroslav Volf interprets work from a new perspective - in terms of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Examining the importance of alienation in work in industrial and information societies particularly in the relation of workers to management and technology, he analyzes various forms of such alienation, and elucidates the character of humane work.

Work in the Spirit: Toward a Theology of Work #ad - Although there have been many popular books and church documents on on the Christian understanding of work, this is the first scholarly effort to articulate a developed Protestant theology of work. On the basis of the "pneumatological" theology of work that he develops, Volf rejects the traditional Protestant understanding of work as vocation, and takes the concept of charisma as the cornerstone for his theological reflection on work.

Since the rise of modern industrial society, work has come to pervade and rule the lives of men and women. All human work done in accordance with the will of God, Volf argues, is cooperation with God in the preservation and transformation of the world.
