We were created by an infinitely creative God to reflect his love and character to the world. One way we do that is by continuing his creative work. In this energizing book, serial entrepreneur and bestselling author Jordan Raynor helps artists, entrepreneurs, writers, and other creatives re-imagine our work as service to God and others, addressing such penetrating questions as:Is my work as a creative really as God-honoring as that of a pastor or missionary?What does it look like to create a name for myself but to glorify God and serve others?How can I use my work to fulfill Jesus' command to create disciples?Will what I make today matter in eternity?To answer these questions, Raynor shares compelling stories from an eclectic group of more than forty Christian entrepreneurs, including the founders of TOMS Shoes, Charity: Water, Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out Burger, Guinness, HTC, and Sevenly, as well as nontraditional entrepreneurs such as C. S. Lewis, Johann Sebastian Bach, and J. R. R. Tolkien. Raynor's "show" rather than "tell," story-driven style makes you feel as if you are sitting at the feet of some of the godliest and most successful entrepreneurs of all time.Perfectly poised to reach today's growing creative class, this unique work restores God's position as the first entrepreneur, helping listeners see the eternal value in the work they do today.
