'This careful, well informed and interesting book offers an important thesis that work is of the essence of human being, including the eschatological dimension: it will provide a significant focus for much theological debate of a neglected topic.'
Timothy Bradshaw, Senior Tutor, Regent's Park College, Oxford, UK
'Cosden's A Thelogy of Work is a substantial new contribution to the field. He highlights the enduring significance of human work in light of the Christian hope of the New Creation and the Kingdom of God. I heartily recommend it to all who are concerned to integrate their work with Christian faith.'
John Jefferson Davis, Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, MA, USA
'The widespread sense felt by so many of us that we are continually on the verge of "burn out" indicates how much we need to be informed by fresh attempts to understand work from a thoroughly biblical and theological
perspective. Darrell Cosden offers just such a promising engagement. Rather than limiting the theological basis for understanding work to a human
vocation entrusted to us in the primordial past, Cosden wisely and helpfully directs our attention as well to the future. Thereby, he provides an eternal vantage point that, if taken to heart, can transform our attitude toward the work that we are called to do in the present.'
