Becoming A Spiritual Influence At Work
by: Bill Peel & Walt Larimore
Workplace Grace: Becoming a Spiritual Influence at Work, systematically outlines a genuine approach to implement authentic workplace evangelism. The book chronicles how Jesus and the early Christians focused on reaching people with the gospel message in the marketplace (bakeries, shops, barracks and town-centers) of the first century. The incredible collaboration of Dr. Walt Larimore and William Carr Peel provides the reader with a solid framework to understand accessible stories of culture transformation in a variety of real businesses. They compare evangelism to an agrarian, three-step metaphor of cultivating, planting and harvesting. Cultivating a personal relationship with a colleague or client takes time before one can plant biblical seeds of God’s truth. The outcome of this level of obedience and investment may produce the eventual harvest of eternal life.
Workplace Grace contains several well designed and compelling charts, diagrams and processes. These illustrations aim to spur the reader toward a process of regularly and publicaly sharing their faith. The authors ultimately reinforce that the bottom-line to being an effective witness for Christ in the workplace starts with prayer and simply communicating the gospel message by executing common courtesies and consistently uplifting those we have the honor to serve.
