Work. Play. Love. Most of our life is spent in these three areas. But all too often, our work is frustrating, our play is exhausting and our relationships are challenging. What would it take to have a life of meaningful work, refreshing fun and great relationships? Mark Shaw paints us a vivid picture of human flourishing, where a convergence of work, play and love brings delight in life. By pursuing wisdom rather than folly, we can have a renewed sense of vocation. Guarding against cultural pitfalls of money, sex and power, Shaw invites us to discover instead a deeper calling to playful work and faithful love. There we can find our place and experience life as it s intended to be lived—playfully, with freedom and joy. Filled with engaging visual illustrations, this friendly guide will help you discover a life where your work, play and love are all in alignment with God's purposes for you and a larger mission in the world.

Teaching is hard. External pressures are steadily increasing, leading to high rates of attrition and burnout. Unlike other resources that attempt to address those external factors, The Cry of the Teacher's Soul offers hope by focusing on the key factor of good education: the teacher. It does so by examining the teacher's inner life--mental, emotional, and spiritual. For the Christian teacher, paradoxes in teaching such as idealism/reality and performance/authenticity often parallel similar paradoxes in the Christian faith. By embracing these paradoxes that probe the depths of issues around identity and purpose, the teacher can sustain the difficult vocation of teaching, even thriving instead of just surviving. Each chapter focuses on a cry of the teacher's soul, features a teacher's story that illustrates that cry, and then explores the paradoxes embedded in teaching and in Christianity.
