rovides a refreshing and yet practical approach to human work. This is a valuable complement to the current interest in this topic, and one that, although challenging some current concepts, is encouraging."Ostring's book on the theology of work in Genesis embodies her thesis: it brings a taste of the blessing that humans are called to be."--Sigve K. Tonstad, Professor of Religion, Loma Linda University"Ostring has addressed a significant lacuna in the academic literature, namely, what the text of Genesis says about work. She has brought her considerable skills as an interpreter of Scripture to bear on this ancient text with illuminating results. Her work is engaging, timely, and innovative. Her study has rich biblical and theological insights and will no doubt be a blessing to all that read her work."--Kayle de Waal, Head of Avondale Seminary, Senior Lecturer in New Testament, Faculty of Arts, Nursing and Theology"Ostring's 'work on work' responds to the need for greater synthesis between the two separate fields of biblical studies and the contemporary Christian doctrine of work. By judicious application of current approaches in both fields, she begins the task of placing a broader biblical foundation under the doctrine, resulting in its timely re-orientation and deepening."--Steven Thompson, Supervisor of Higher Degrees by Research, Avondale College"Ostring's volume is a ground-breaking investigation into the theology of work within the book of Genesis. On a broader front, it also constitutes a robust challenge to the influential concept of co-creationism. Its readable style and accessible content will appeal to a broad range of readers, in particular to Christians eager to understand the place of human work in God's creation. It is essential reading."--Laurence Turner, Principal Lecturer Emeritus in Old Testament, Newbold CollegeElizabeth Ellen Ostring, MB, ChB, MMin, PhD, who is married with adult twins, currently has pastoral roles in Auckland, New Zealand.
