Where do we find the core of life’s meaning? Right on the job! At whatever work we do—with head or hand, from kitchen to executive suite, from your house to the White House! “Work is the great equalizer—everyone has to come to it in order to find meaning in living: no short cuts, no detours, no bargain rates.”

Lester DeKoster saw work as a manifestation of whole-life discipleship. Work: The Meaning of Your Life discusses essential insights in DeKoster’s belief that work gives life meaning.

About Lester DeKoster

Lester DeKoster (1916–2009) was the director of Libraries and a professor of speech at Calvin College. He earned his doctorate from the University of Michigan in 1964, after completing a dissertation on “Living Themes in the Thought of John Calvin: A Bibliographical Study.” After his retirement from Calvin College in 1969, DeKoster labored for a decade as the editor of The Banner, a weekly news magazine of the Christian Reformed Church. During this time DeKoster also launched, in collaboration with Gerard Berghoef and their families, the Christian’s Library Press, a publishing endeavor intended to provide timely resources both for the church’s laity and its leadership.
