Tim Keller’s 4 Ways the Gospel Transforms Work


Tim Keller started thinking deeply about a Christian view of work when a member of his congregation met with him to ask what it meant to be a Christian actor. Over years of thinking and teaching on work, Keller has observed four ways the gospel can transform work:

  1. Christian faith gives you a new identity, without which work can sink you.
  2. Christian faith gives you a new concept of the dignity of all work, without which work can bore you.
  3. Christian faith gives you a moral compass, without which work can corrupt you.
  4. Christian faith gives you a new worldview, without which work will be your master instead of your servant.

Listen to Keller unpack these principles (and share a fifth as a bonus) to an audience at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, on November 8, 2016. A time of questions and answers follows the talk.
