The world of work is expanding. New technologies, industries and means of meeting apart–and–still–together, have presided in the transition of the workplace into a fast, digital and busier–than–ever era. In whichever sector you care to name, work is increasing exponentially, for reducing rewards and benefits. It is more than easy to complain, drag one’s feet while getting out of the door, and face daily tasks with an apathetic attitude.
'A Good Return' does not provide maxims to get you through the day. Instead, it is a book that encourages Christians to view their workspace, be it field, car, classroom or office, as an avenue of worship.
John C. Lennox has crafted a book with thoughtful, biblical and evangelical deliberation on our behaviour in, and towards, our work. With his trademark clarity, faithfulness and wisdom, Lennox curates room for a wider discussion on Christian approaches toward salaries, time management, motivation and attitudes amidst a workspace environment.
"Foundational, humbling and searing ... here's the handbook for the Scriptural principles for your work.
--Rico Tice (Author and Founder of Christianity Explored Ministries)
"The dividends one will add from reading this will multiply business success exponentially. My word of advice: read this book and take its messages to heart!"
--Mark Lanier (Owner, The Lanier Law Firm and Found, Lanier Foundation, Houston, Texas)
"This book is dripping with wisdom gleaned both from biblical insights and life experience. It will provide great help, encouragement and joyful inspiration to all who are seeking to apply the Lordship of Christ in all these vital areas of life."
--Lindsay Brown (Former General Secretary of IFES and International Director, Lausanne Movement) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Many of John Lennox’s books are about the interface between science and faith, this one however is about the issue of work. For many, work is merely a way of putting bread on the table, but Lennox encourages Christians to see their work as an act of worship. It is hard to think of someone better equipped to write a book like this given he chose to commit to a career as an academic in Oxford in which he excelled, but at the same time he is someone who is deeply pastoral and interested in how Christins live out the faith in everyday life. This short book is full of wisdom and warmth and common-sense spirituality. A great book for anyone in the workplace.
