R. Paul Stevens and Alvin Ung tap into the wisdom of the Bible and the Christian spiritual tradition to redefine the workplace as an arena for personal spiritual growth. Together they discuss real-life dilemmas and give practical guidance on turning professional work into the catalyst for a richer, more balanced spiritual life. --from publisher description

Instead of regarding work as a diversion from the spiritual life, R. Paul Stevens and Alvin Ung are convinced that it is an arena and an incentive for spiritual growth. However, they acknowledge that this is not without its challenges. Work in Progress examines life in the workplace through an innovative exploration of both the seven deadly sins and the ninefold fruit of the Spirit. This approach provides a framework to reveal how the Spirit has given Christians powerful gifts to overcome struggles the face in the challenges of daily work in a globalized world. The authors interact both with one another and with the wisdom of great spiritual writers of history in order to draw out real-life dilemmas and to suggest practical tips for becoming vibrant disciples in the workplace.In addition to filling a critical need for a resource on spiritual growth at work, Work in Progress has an intercultural approach the authors are from Canada and Malaysia that is particularly dynamic and engaging.
