This insightful and engaging book offers practical guidance to transforming the routine of everyday work into a life-giving participation in bearing witness to the Gospel and our own share in manifesting Christ's kingdom.

"Kevin's book is an important reminder that we are called to live our faith in our work, where we spend so much of our life. He offers wonderful insights centered on serving others, but does so by revealing an unwavering commitment towards keeping Christ at the top of one's priorities, regardless of the demands of the workplace.

-J. David Karam, president, Wendy's International, Inc.
"In our society, faith and work are often presented as things tht don't mix or shouldn't be mixed: et nothing could be further from the truth. In this book, Kevin skillfully shows how we are in fact called to sanctity in and through our work. Faith at Work is both poth practical and inspiring!"
-Tom Monaghan, founder, Domino's Pizza, Inc., and Ave Maria University
"Too many Christians treat 'ambition' and 'success' as if they're four-letter words. They're not. For a Catholic in business, they can be touchstones of sanctification. Kevin Lowry knows that, and he shows us how to turn a career of nine-to-five into a lasting encounter with Jesus Christ."
-Scott Hahn, Ph.D., professor of Biblical Theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville
"A source of both encouragement and challenge ... all Christians will benefit from reading this book and reflecting on the lessons of the Gospel applied to our everyday work."
