Christianity Today’s This Is Our City project is one of the best contemporary collections of Christians working for the common good in their cities.  The stories of Christian living out their faith through their work are extensive, ranging from school leaders and tech entrepreneurs to electricians and mattress salesmen. If you’re wondering about what faith at work looks like in practice, look no further.

Comment Magazine, based out of Canada, pursues “public theology for the common good.” Editor James K.A. Smith intends to build the Protestant equivalent of First Things, a prominent Catholic periodical that addresses faith and public life. Comment regularly has both great cultural analysis and cases of solid implementation in field ranging from finance to architecture.

The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture, by Wendell Berry. Originally published in 1977, The Unsettling of America has become an American classic. Berry argues that farming is a spiritual discipline and a cultural development that has been separated from families, communities, and the land itself. His eloquent voice is a must-read for farmers, ranchers, and those who earn their livelihood from the land.

Food and Faith: A Theology of Eating, by Norman Wirzba.  This richly theological book includes “discussions on the sacramental character of eating, eating’s ecological and social contexts, the meaning of death and sacrifice as they relate to eating, the Eucharist as the place of inspiration and orientation, the importance of saying grace, and whether or not there will be eating in heaven.” A thoughtful book for those involved in agriculture or food production – or for those who simply eat.

Scripture, Culture and Agriculture: An Agrarian Reading of the Bible, by Ellen F. Davis. Nine essays on the theology and practice of land use, with a prophetic eye turned toward modern agricultural practices.

Retail Service Sector
