9780826415851: After Sunday

Many people devote themselves to their work. And it is an easy step from there to show that this devotion has a strong religious bent. But does it follow that devotion to work is bending the knee to idolatry, giving service to mammon? This book says no, not necessarily. In many cases human work is co-creative with the Creator. Why, then, is there so little effort to explore the theological dimension of everyday work? The principal impediment to a proper theological understanding of work is the church's voracious appetite to concentrate everything onto Sunday and its own institutional needs. The kingdom of God gets foreshortened to ecclesiastical boundaries so that the shop floor, the foundry, or the lumberyard and all other places of work are out of bounds. Another impediment keeps the doctrine of the laity too anemic to possess a creativity of its own. This book lays a positive theological framework for a Christian understanding of work, be it manual, intellectual, service-related or not. It does this chiefly around the doctrine of the Trinity. It then turns to show how this system can underpin an ethics and spirituality of work.

About the Author:

Armand E. Larive is an Episcopal priest who combined parish ministry with teaching philosophy at Washington State University.

Review:

"His work is innovative in that he draws from a wealth of interdisciplinary literature, including but not limited to scripture, theology, economics, philosophy, sociology and feminist theory. The result is a theology of work that is rooted in creation-centered natural theology and the doctrine of the Trinity."After Sunday is an sightful and challenging discussion of the theology of work and its implications for our understanding of vocation and ministry." - The Living Church, October 2004 (The Rev. Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook The Living Church)

“After Sunday is an extensive theological examination of the role of work in thinking about ourselves as creatures with a divine destiny.” –Sewanee Theological Review, 48.2, Easter 2005

"AfterSunday is a superb, at times brilliant, and engrossing book. [The author's]substantial theological analysis is apt and comprehensive, practical andphilosophical. I will return again and again to this book to mine itsresources. Clergy and others who are genuinely interested in viewing laity asmore than clients or instruments of parochial service will find that readingand reflecting on After Sunday istime well spent. Larive has given us a provocative, enlightening, and essentialcomponent of our theological homework." — AngelicanTheological Review (Anglican Theological Review)

"deserves to be read, understood and acted upon...After Sunday is a challenging and stimulating debate, and much to be recommended. It should form the basis for lively and live discussion." - The Expository Times, January 2006 (Reverend Canon Peter Allen Expository Times)
