How to negotiate the first few months at work and continue wholeheartedly with Jesus at work - for your working life.
Day one in the new job.
You're keen, you're nervous and your new shoes are pinching. Will you get there on time? Will you fit in? And will you be competent - or clueless?
Many start their first job with three great hopes; a brand new status, a salary and loads of job satisfaction. Some even plan to shine for Jesus in their workplace.
But all too often the pressures of work life cause even the keenest Christians to wilt.
Jago Wynne believes with a passion that people can flourish in their work and keep their faith intact, if properly prepared. With humour, insight and real-life stories, he equips readers both to negotiate the first few months and to continue wholeheartedly with Jesus at work - for an entire working life.
