When you understand it properly, the doctrine of vocation--"doing everything for God's glory"--is not a platitude or an outdated notion. This principle that we vaguely apply to our lives and our work is actually the key to Christian ethics, to influencing our culture for Christ, and to infusing our ordinary, everyday lives with the presence of God. For when we realize that the "mundane" activities that consume most of our time are "God's hiding places," our perspective changes.

Culture expert Gene Veith unpacks the biblical, Reformation teaching about the doctrine of vocation, emphasizing not what we should specifically do with our time or what careers we are called to, but what God does in and through our callings--even within the home. In each task He has given us--in our workplaces and families, our churches and society--God Himself is at work. Veith guides you to discover God's purpose and calling in those seemingly ordinary areas by providing you with a spiritual framework for thinking about such issues and for acting upon them with a changed perspective.

God at Work: Your Christian Vocation in All of Life

Great book on vocation
July 16th, 2013
Really it is about "vocations"... multiple callings Christians have from careers, families, ministries, and choices that surround us. Written from a Reformed viewpoint, the scriptural foundation is solid with a heavy emphasis on Reformed theology, particularly catechisms. I found it a helpful resource for understanding how doing everyday work as a plumber, web designer, educator, landscaper, banker, artist, spouse, parent, or politician all serve to advance the gospel in ways professional ministry NEVER can. A worthy read.
