David L. Bahnsen Eric Kohn

In this session, David Bahnsen will be interviewed by Acton’s Director of Marketing & Communications, Eric Kohn, about his new book Full Time: Work and the Meaning of Life. In his book, Bahnsen makes the case that our understanding of work and its role in our lives is deeply flawed – we are unmoored from what he calls “created purpose.” He argues that the time has come to stop tiptoeing around the issues that matter, that separating one’s identity from what they do is demonstrably false, and that this era of alienation is for many a direct result of a low view of work.  It is in work -- effort, service, striving -- of every kind that we discover our meaning and purpose; a significant and successful life is one rooted in full-time productivity and cultivation of God’s created world.
