I have the greatest feelings of affection for this book. I "discovered it" one day while browsing the bookshelves of a Christian Book store in Mission Viejo, CA. The sense of excitement I felt when I found the book was greatly connected to the fact that I had been a member of the congregation where Ben Patterson had been serving as Sr. Pastor before he went on to serve as dean of the chapel at Hope College.

The fly page before the title page contains a great summary quote by Balzac for why anyon

This book written by former Hope College Dean of the Chapel is relevant to our attitude toward work and worship. I enjoyed it at this time in my life, having now worked for about 15 years. " It is the invisible life that gives vitality to the visible " -pg 70 He also says "There ought to be a kind of playfulness about our work...the earnest fun of children imitating their heavenly Father" -pg 121
