I have a personal habit of looking through the first 10 pages of a book, and if I do not find it interesting at that point, I won’t waste my time reading it. When my friend, Douglas Woolley, gave me his book, The Value of Work in the Eyes of God, I began looking through it while I was on an airplane. The more I read, the more interested I became. As a businessman, I often ask myself “does my daily work really matter to God?” This book not only answers that question, but it biblically explains the “how” and the “why.” When we work for God, He becomes our boss and our provider. Therefore, we will be motivated to do all our work with diligence and excellence, giving honor unto Him. It is workers like this that will point those around them to the reality of our Lord. Thank you, my friend Douglas, for this special gift of this book that opened my mind, and especially my heart, to these truths.

This book by Doug Woolley, The Value of Work in the Eyes of God, goes right to the heart of explaining why our everyday work is ordained by God in fulfilling His plan for our lives. Doug’s literary ability is easily seen as he takes the reader from the history, theology, and biblical principles of work, to honoring God and balancing our individual significant priorities in life. He details the "Faith at Work Movement," and brings to light the misconception that we need to be ministering full-time to the spiritual needs of others, if we really want to please God. I pray the Lord will anoint your reading of Doug's book in discovering your work as a ministry.

Doug Woolley succinctly traces the history of the Protestant work ethic through the contrasting attitudes currently held. This study of the theology of work has both breadth and depth with solid scriptural anchoring. Readers will be enriched with a deeper understanding of how time spent in meaningful work counts for eternity and glorifies God.

The Value of Work is such an important book if we expect to reclaim our culture for Jesus Christ . . . The book you are holding in your hand will help fill the current void of solid materials on a theology of work” (from Foreword).

By carefully weaving the historical, theological, and practical aspects of work, Doug Woolley has been able to reveal to his readers the significant influence they can be in the marketplace. In my opinion, he has very clearly shown us that both the secular and the sacred are important to the carrying out of God’s plans and purposes in the earth. This book is a must read not only for those in the workplace but should be read by those preparing to enter the workforce. I pray that this book will help its readers to understand more fully the verse, “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” (Colossians 3:23, NKJV).

Many books have been written exploring faith and work issues, but helpful summaries of relevant biblical, historical, and theological perspectives are hard to find. In the book The Value of Work in the Eyes of God, Douglas Woolley provides us with a very useful introduction to the mountain of material he has been sifting through. He offers us a treasure-trove of information and a valuable introduction to some of the key people and perspectives that have shaped this movement.

Doug Woolley leaves no stone unturned in his research for The Value of Work in the Eyes of God. It took me back to God’s promise to Abram, “…I will bless you… and you will be a blessing” (Gen. 12:2). The Value of Work in the Eyes of God details the “What” and the “How” of ministry in the workplace and, more importantly, it clearly lays out the “Why” we are called to be available to serve in all circumstances. Success in business is providing goods or services to help someone accomplish their goal, which is compatible with God’s plan. Success in God’s eyes is being available to be used by the Lord to serve in all circumstances. Doug Woolley’s book is a valuable resource to accomplish God’s goal for each of us.

Doug Woolley's book, The Value of Work in the Eyes of God, is a really good read and has been a blessing in shaping my perspective. There are people who really need to see the value in what they are doing for the kingdom in their workplace, and the biggest lie of the enemy is, "Why this waste?" (Matt. 26:8). So many people go through these mid-life crises thinking that they have let God down and feeling like their lives have counted for nothing because they were not behind some pulpit or some missions newsletter or something of that nature. The devil is a liar, and Doug's book helps destroy his falsehood.
