Item Description...
Overview
A book that will challenge people of every faith to reconcile the cares of their work and the strivings of their souls and restore the hidden link between them. By exploding our assumptions that work and spirituality are irreconcilable, Salkin explores how spirituality can enhance our 9-to-5 lives, offering us ways to smuggle religion into our workplace. Thought-provoking, practical, and exhilarating, Being God s Partner goes beyond just talking about the subject to give the reader specific actions to take right now to find greater meaning in their work, and see themselves continuing God s work in the world. 1996 Award of Excellence, Body Mind Spirit Magazine

Publishers Description

What is spirituality anyway? Isn't spirituality about emotion?And isn't work about the rational mind?

"Too often, we divorce our 'work life from our 'real life, from our innermost beliefs and convictions. But work can be as much a part of our life and as much a vehicle for spiritual growth and personal understanding as going to synagogue or church on Saturday or Sunday or taking a walk in the woods or reading quietly to our kids at bedtime. In fact work may be among the most potent vehicles for fulfilling our spiritual life because, for many of us, it presents the best opportunities to meld community and social and economic productivity with personal belief and individual talent." from the Introduction by Norman Lear

Being God s Partner will help people of every faith reconcile the cares of their work and the strivings of their souls and restore the hidden link between them.

By exploding our assumptions that work and spirituality are irreconcilable, Salkin explores how spirituality can enhance our 9-to-5 lives. "It is time to be as rich internally as we are externally," he writes, offering soul-stirring ways to smuggle religion into our workplace.

Thought-provoking, practical and exhilarating, Being God s Partner goes beyond just talking about the subject to give you specific actions to take and connections to make right now to help infuse our lives with greater meaning, purpose and satisfaction and invigorate all that we do."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a bit too elementary for me ...  Jan 17, 2005
since I could have guessed many of the book's points without reading it. But if I hadn't read numerous similar books (most notably Joseph Telushkin's book on Jewish values) I would have gotten more out of it, so I would definitely recommend it for people who have not read those books.

Basic points were as follows:

1. Classical Judaism generally favored work as opposed to monasticism.
2. Some jobs are socially constructive and thus spiritual in their own right. (Though Salkin picks some very easy examples such as medicine; I think he would have done better to pick some less obvious examples- for example, what's spiritual about being an investment banker?)
3. A brief discussion of Jewish business ethics. (One-sentence summary: honesty is good).
4. Workaholism is bad.
