My e-book Interview with The High Calling

July 24, 2012

Here is an excerpt from an interview with Glynn Young, posted today over at The High Calling, where we talk about my e-book, At Work as it is in Heaven.  

I’ve been seeing a few books on faith in the workplace, but not one quite like this — written from the perspective of someone “on the inside,” someone who works in corporate America and understands the pressures and realities of organizational work. What prompted you to write the book?

Several years ago, I was searching for material to help me as I struggled to integrate my career with a quest for greater spiritual purpose. The available “faith in the workplace” content was mostly disappointing, to say the least. It all seemed idealized, over-spiritualized, and over-sanitized. As a manager, there was nothing I could relate to that acknowledged some pretty basic career concerns, like ambition, competition, making money and establishing a career identity. All of these are real-life variables that get mixed into our adult working lives, yet it was like Christian “experts” were afraid to mention them for fear of coming off as unspiritual or something.

Since I couldn’t find anything, I started writing it myself. I covered every topic and issue I could think of as it related to the question of spiritual purpose in work and business. Writing was also a form of spiritual/career therapy, you might say. It actually helped me to resolve much of what I was struggling with. Before long I had dozens of essays and stories written and felt that surely I cannot be the only person who struggled with these issues. Perhaps this content could help others in similar life predicaments. We culled 25 of these essays for this project.

    That’s what has always distinguished you from the rest — your ability to call it as you see it. You’re kind of like a Christian Dilbert — seeing things as they really are, and then giving it a dose of faith solutions.
