Recently I read Tim Keller’s latest book, Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work (Dutton), which he co-authored with Katherine Leary Alsdorf. So far, it’s the best book I’ve read on the important topic of integrating faith and work.

You may recall that in early October, before the book’s release, I shared an excerpt on common grace along with the book’s trailer.

I anticipated the book here and pointed to it again here. [...]
