A biblical worldview requires a biblical view of work: It is a blessing, not a curse, and we can use it to glorify God.
Here is a new, short video from the magazine Christianity Today about a businessman in Phoenix, Arizona who is revitalizing and blessing his city through his propensity for business.

Some comments by readers:
“The book challenges one’s mindset in what work is–a blessing from God–and the way to really live out what we say we believe.” -Cherish
“Clear concepts and simple graphics help communicate the application of a biblical perspective.” -Jill Thrift
“I especially appreciated how the Christian Worldview reveals the need for balance in the task of ‘doing good.'” -W. Switzer
This video, created by our friends at Art for Change in New Delhi, won the first-place $1,000 prize in a contest run by All Girls Allowed, an organization fighting ‘gendercide‘ in China and beyond.
“Best of all was seeing where all the short video reached!” says Stefan Eicher, director of Art for Change. “Two highlights were: hearing back from someone who survived birth in a family that wanted her a boy, and hearing about a government legislator in the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh who was deeply moved by the video and plans to show it to the chief minister of the state and use it in their government programs.”
Art for Change is partnering with the Let Her Live campaign, a movement to restore the dignity and equality of women and girl children in India, and will use the prize money toward info packs, street theater performances, and college-campus screenings of the new documentary film “It’s A Girl.” The money also will pay for the production of a CD of songs previously written in a song-writing workshop on female foeticide (the killing of baby girls).
DNA’s relationship with Art for Change has been long and fruitful. “Darrow [co-founder of DNA] has been a mentor to me,” Stefan says, “and in many ways all that I am doing here with the arts has been birthed out of the vision and ideas he planted in us.”
