Abstract

The overreaching goal of this book is to present a resource for faith and work application and study, as well as to encourage further research on this topic. Though there have been many books on faith-and-work-related topics, this book was written to bridge faith and work integration (FWI) research and application. Though academic works on this topic number well into the thousands (see Chap.  5) and popular titles appear to be as numerous (see Chap.  7), the authors felt a need to provide a book that would connect these two realms. Much like the gathered church, within academia it is beneficial to grow, learn, and be encouraged. But it is important for those involved in faith and work research to relay findings in a way that reaches beyond colleges and universities. Using the “church as a cruise ship” analogy, this book is an attempt to provide a mechanism whereby both the Church and academia can operate more like air-craft carriers by sending out their members and messages into the world of work.
