How does faith at work look like in reality? In this follow-up to Workship 1, Kara Martin shares more practical wisdom on making a difference in the workplace. Topics range from hospitality and leadership, to ethical issues and workplace conflict, to reflections on unemployment, women and work, and the future of work.

Kara also provides effective ways that churches can adopt to better equip their congregations to "workship," addressing areas like service programmes, workplace visitations, and mentoring. From the church to the local community, Workship 2 helps bridge the sacred-secular divide and inspires workers to thrive in their working.

Review quote

Kara Martin's book Workship Volume 2: How to Flourish at Work is a wonderful extension to her first book, Workship: How to Use Your Work to Worship God. This topic is very close to my heart as a nursing facilitator and in my involvement teaching spiritual care in a nursing context to many audiences around the world. Kara is committed to helping us bridge the gap between our Sunday faith and our Monday chaos. I appreciate her rich biblical foundations and then the counterbalance offering real ideas, encouragement, and motivation to flourish at work and to be change agents with depth, purpose, and love. It is a powerful book and relevant to those who truly desire to infuse work and worship in a dynamic and rich way.

Unfortunately, throughout the centuries, there has been little engagement by theologians with the ways God empowers Christians for their ordinary work lives. Kara Martin's work fills a very deep void where Christian discipleship and spiritual formation material for the workplace should be in our libraries and Christian bookshops. The practical studies provided in Workship 2 allow application to the gritty, tangible aspects of life in the real world. I can't wait to redesign our Hillsong College Christian spirituality course with these volumes!

Workship 2 is a welcome combination of theology, practice, prayer and reflection. Many Christians struggle with what it means to see their places of work as places of ministry. It's not just using the workplace as a springboard for evangelism; it is seeing the workplace as an environment in which we can show Christian hospitality, ethics, and creative beauty. Some jobs lend themselves more easily to being seen as places of ministry, but any legitimate work can be God-honouring. Last week a man who crashes cars for a living (to test safety ratings) asked me about what it would look like to worship God through his work. Having now read Workship 2, I feel better equipped to answer the question. This look gives many practical applications for how to bridge the Sunday to Monday divide.

Kara Martin's latest contribution to the global faith-at-work movement is practical, personal, and passionate. Page after page is filled with tried and tested ideas that will appeal to readers who want to integrate their faith and their work. There is a raw honesty in the book -- no glib triumphalism here -- as Kara draws on the daily reality of her own and others' experiences, then brings biblical wisdom to bear providing deeper insight. Having worked with Kara on a number of work and faith projects in recent years, it is no surprise that her passion for seeing the gospel impact in the workplace is evident throughout. If you are a church leader, please read this book and be equipped and encouraged with the many simple and easily implemented tools provided. If you are a Christian in the workplace, get a copy -- read, mark, and inwardly digest!
