Being God's Partner: How to Find the Hidden Link Between Spirituality and Your Work

Jeffrey K. Salkin, Author, Norman Lear, Introduction by Jewish Lights Publishing $19.95 (192p) ISBN 978-1-879045-37-8
According to Rabbi Salkin, the spiritual lives of many Jews are often divorced from their working lives. Salkin sets out to heal this split by using Torah and rabbinic literature to demonstrate that the integration of work and spirituality is central to the theological heritage of Judaism. The best moments of the book are found in Salkin's incisive indictments of the spiritually debilitating forces of workaholism, careerism and consumerism. In a final chapter, Salkin offers eight steps (e.g., daily prayer, making room for God as partner in success) toward restoring the balance between work and spirit in our lives. Although the book often has the hollow ring of some of M. Scott Peck's spiritual psychology, Salkin's work will challenge readers to reconsider their work as a way of being God's partner in the world. (Feb.)
