The Old Testament is a source of wisdom that is relevant to contemporary life, both to those with Judeo-Christian backgrounds and to those of other faiths. The dramatic stories found in the ancient text -- illustrating the faith of Job, the courage of David, the compassion of Ruth, the justice of Moses -- reveal the virtues needed to live a meaningful life. Not only that, these stories raise timeless questions about the human condition that today's readers can apply to their professional lives.

This book grew out of the authors' thinking about key issues and questions they face in work and life. Together, the authors represent Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish heritages, and a wide age range.
