Created for Work

Modern culture seems addicted to ease and entertainment. It has produced a generation of educated yet often dishonest, unproductive, or weak-willed men. God desires higher standards for His people. He is looking for young men who do not shy away from hard work, who are not afraid to get their hands dirty, who can follow directions, think creatively, respect authority, and happily complete their duties in a timely manner. This is a part of training up young men to be future fathers, teachers, and leaders.

All young men should be on the road to developing a healthy attitude toward work. Honest productive work is the backbone of strong families and blessed nations. Bob Schultz’s books address essential issues related to godly character as boys transition into manhood. In Created for Work he applies his engaging homespun wisdom, with stories from real life, to teach young men what it means to be good workers. Mr. Schultz uses Bible stories, interesting narratives from his own childhood, and meaningful analogies to illustrate lessons. He obviously remembers the struggles of becoming a man and does an excellent job communicating with compassion and understanding. Created for Work inspires young men and offers the tools and encouragement they need to embrace God’s ways and always give an honest day’s work. Chapters are short enough to read easily in one sitting. Questions at the end of each chapter make Created for Work an excellent book for discussion.

Bob Schultz is also the author of Boyhood and Beyond, Practical Happiness, and Everyday Battles.
