    When I was growing up in various evangelical communities, most conversations regarding "work and faith" ended up being about "work and evangelism." Granted, this conversation is critical within Christian circles, but this way of thinking of work as a means-to-an-end tended to reduce work to a necessary evil for some higher spiritual purpose. Stevens and Ung take a refreshing approach approach with "Taking Your Soul to Work."

Stevens and Ung take a refreshing approach approach with "Taking Your Soul to Work." Rather than tackling "work and evangelism" or "work and its greater meaning," the authors focus on the spiritual dimensions of work. Specifically, they focus on how a person is transformed and grows spiritually through the daily grind of work itself. A unique feature of the book is it's organization: The book is organized according to the "seven deadly sins" (plus two) with corresponding chapters for both the fruits of the spirit and what they call "Outcomes of a Spirit-Led Life." The book can be read straight through, but I found it helpful to read the chapters that are naturally grouped together. If you read "Taking Your Soul to Work" as a theological treatise on the meaning of work, you're going to be disappointed. This is basically a guidebook for reflection and introspection, a roadmap for the "inner journey" in the workplace.

    I thought this was a great book to show people what they could do to improve their situations at work according to the Bible. The book acknowledged the seven deadly sins that not only affect us in everyday life but also at work as well as other sins that we're not aware of and how to battle against them. It was a very practical book and backed up with many Bible verses. I thought this was a great book to show people what they could do to improve their situations at work according to the Bible.

    Although the advice throughout the work is rooted in the wisdom of the Bible, the lessons and stories in Taking your soul can be thought provoking. I consider it worthwhile reading.
