We spend 50 to 75 percent of our waking hours and 60 to 90 percent of the years of our lives working. Yet many of us never invest even a fraction of that time exploring the vision that drives our lives and work.
Whether or not we think of ourselves as theologians, none of us can avoid having a theology that shapes our lives. The question is, are we aware of what our personal, functioning theology really is?
Few know better how practical theology is than Darrow Miller. In more than twenty-five years of work in relief and development, Miller has lived at the intersection of worldview and everyday activity. Now, in this exploration of vocation that has the potential to radically reorder our lives, Miller lays out the thought background necessary for each of us to establish a meaningful, integrated understanding of our life and work. Whatever our work or vocation, God calls each of us to a new way of living—fully in His presence.
“Darrow Miller brilliantly shows how to live and work before God and why it's so important to grasp the biblical theology of vocation. His summary of the Bible's essential metanarrative is pitch-perfect, and his application of that to cultural pursuits is exactly what those who waver need to hear.”Marvin OlaskyProvost, The King's College, New York CityEditor-in-chief, World Magazine “LifeWork provides the essentials for transforming nations. In this book you will discover tools for renewing the culture of your cities and nations. LifeWork contains the fundamentals for the fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer for God’s Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth.”

“Having worked among the poorest of the poor, Darrow Miller has credibility when he writes about the sources of poverty. With his characteristic thoroughness and gentleness, he builds a case for the worldview basis of work and wealth creation.”
Nancy PearceyAuthor of Total Truth and coauthor of How Now Shall We Live?
“Against the narrow, individualistic conception of the gospel that unfortunately gets preached in many evangelical churches, Miller offers the biblically accurate—and exhilarating—description of the gospel of the Kingdom. Miller paints a picture of how to connect all of our life and work now to our glorious future on the New Earth. LifeWork enlarges vision and passion for taking up our high calling of culture-making, joining King Jesus on His mission of healing our broken planet.”
