On Work and Vocation

Recently a man from our church asked me for some recommendations I could make regarding work, vocation, living missionally, and how that all goes together.  When I scanned my Evernote files, I found that over the last couple of years I had assembled many more books and articles on this topic than I knew.  Below is the list I sent him.

If you have struggled through the combination of work, vocation, and living missionally, perhaps one or more of these resources will be helpful for you as well.  I have read several of these and only skimmed others.  Chew well and spit out the bones.
