Write a 2,000-word paper that applies, reflects, and synthesizes the following questions: 1.      What does Keller

Write a 2,000-word paper that applies, reflects, and synthesizes the following questions:

1.      What does Keller mean when he claims that work is intended for both “cultivation” and for “service?” Why are both purposes critical for us to consider as Christian business practitioners and academics?  Especially relative to HR?


2.      Hardy provides a quote from the Apocrypha (Ecclesiaticus or Sirach 38:34, NOT canonized as part of the protestant Bible) as introductory to his book, and the title of his book is pulled directly from this quote. How does this quote, along with Genesis 1:27-28 from the protestant Bible, provoke Christian worldview thinking regarding HR as a key focus for any business organization?


3.      Analyze and assess 2 or 3 differences between a traditional/administrative view of HR and a contemporary/strategic view of HR. How does Christian worldview thinking apply here?


4.      Delineate 3 or 4 key ways that Equal Employment Opportunity and Labor/Union Management statutes (Valentine chapters 3 and 15) inform HR practice.  How does Christian worldview illumine both the inherent “righteousness” of, and the pragmatic “necessity” of, EEO and labor/Union Management statutes?
