Title: Participating in the new creation: a theological appreciation of work
Authors: Novello, Henry Leonard
Keywords: Theology
Christian eschatology
Issue Date: 2010
Publisher: Australian Province of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart

Abstract: The purpose of this essay is to offer an appraisal of John Paul II’s encyclical Laborem Exercens (LE) by bringing his understanding of the meaning of labour into dialogue with Miroslav Volf’s proposed theology of work which is set forth in his book Work in the Spirit: Toward a Theology of Work. The essay will show that there is a significant degree of overlap between these two thinkers on the subject of human work, but it will also seek to highlight some weaknesses in the encyclical that are overcome by Volf’s explicitly eschatological and pneumatological perspective of human work.
