Front Cover
InterVarsity Press, May 31, 2006 - Religion - 199 pages
Instead of grinding it out until Friday and living only for weekends, a successful Ohio manufacturing executive has seen how his work can be filled with meaning and purpose. The key is integrating his work and beliefs. As a result, both grow--along with his love for Mondays. Beckett brings all of life together: work, belief, value, character, relationship, truth, worship and joy. The result is employees who feel valued, enjoy their work, work hard and are successful at what they do. Here is a book for everyone who wants to succeed in business without selling out. Includes study guide and a new afterword.
