"The authors write clearly and persuasively; each section of the book offers a theoretical and scriptural basis for the ideas discussed and practical suggestions for their implementation."--Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW, April 14, 2014
"Those who are questioning (or despairing over) the temptation of successful, efficient and fast modes of doing church--being part of the 'fast food' culture--will find in this book a helpful way to think about ethical orientations, environment and finances in light of the call of the Gospel. What I think may be particularly helpful is Smith and Pattison's exploration of our understanding of work and the ways Christian communities can encourage people to discriminate between 'good' (meaningful, creative) and 'bad' (depersonalized, isolating) work."--Lina Toth, Regent Reviews, April 2015, 6.2
