A Practical Theology of Work and Wealth

Plod, don't sprint.

Be fruitful like a tree, not efficient like a machine.


Look Inside the Book


In this book, Douglas Wilson gives theology for technology, work, and mission that helps you be thoughtfully productive in the digital age.

We should not rush to buy each and every new iPhone or fancy new gadget, but neither should we reject the new technology out of nostalgia for the good ol' days when people worked with their hands or starved.

Instead, we are called to see modern technology as wealth and tools that we can use, whether for good or for ill.

The key is wisdom and the ability to create the right habits and the regular discipline to use what we have been given.

Ploductivity: n,

  1. the practice of plodding away at a pile of work, instead of frantically trying to sprint through it all
  2. being stable and graceful, like a buffalo upon the plains, not frantic, like a prairie dog or roadrunner
