Is there a Christian way to handle conflict at work?

Does Christianity affect whether or not you join a union?

What does God think of office politics?

Christians often profess that Jesus is Lord over all of life. Yet it isn't always easy to relate Christianity to your day-to-day activities and concerns.

R. Paul Stevens and Robert Banks, editors of The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity on which this Everyday Faith eSeries title is based, believe Christian truth is for the routines and not just the crises of life. From career choices to workplace dress codes, their collection of thirty-three thought-provoking essays helps you to "work" out your faith in practical ways on the job.

Whether you read from beginning to end or dip into the articles that interest you most, you'll gain insight on how Christian faith can guide, illuminate and energize your daily life.
