“A Revelation of Hope for the Workplace”
The Book of Revelation may not seem like the most promising soil in which to cultivate a theology of work. But the Apocalypse in fact provides a wealth of insight for Christians wrestling with what their work means in the big picture of God's purposes for the world. We will explore some of those themes together.
Sean McDonough is professor of New Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, where he has been since 2000. Prior to that, he was at Pacific Theological College in Suva, Fiji, where he had served as the Chair of the Biblical Studies Department and as a lecturer in New Testament.
He is a Sunday School teacher and occasional preacher at First Congregational Church in Hamilton. He is also a speaker for Medair, a Christian relief organization based in Switzerland. He has degrees from Harvard College (BA), Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M. Div, M.Th.) and University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
His research interests include creation/cosmology in the Bible and the Ancient Near East, Hellenistic Judaism, Greek philosophy and religion and the Book of Revelation. Sean has a keen interest in the theology of creation, as evidenced by his latest book, Christ as Creator (Oxford University Press, 2010). This led naturally to an interest in the role of work within God's world. He has pursued his research on the Bible and the workplace as a founding member and Biblical Studies editor of the Theology of Work project. He was the primary author of the commentary on Revelation in the Theology of Work Collection (www.theologyofwork.org).
