Tuscaloosa, AL, 2017 – God expects us all to work, it's part of the Christian calling, but do we actually enjoy our work or is it just a means to an end? Through Scripture, God offers the answers; like how it's not a bad thing to be rich, but how we handle our wealth is what makes the difference.

Larry Clayton, author of Work and Wealth in Scripture: How to Grow, Prosper and Work as a Christian, believes we must apply the truth that is in Scripture to the challenges that face America today. "Wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time. If we don't get it right, we could be turning away from the traditions and culture that make this country exceptional,” he adds.

Larry Clayton has searched for answers in many places; from the most scholarly Christian writers like St. Augustine, to small, rural Pentecostal churches across the Americas. "I have worshiped in many of the world's great cathedrals, and I have seen the work of the Holy Spirit spilling out across believers united not by creeds and rituals, but moved by the power of the Spirit.”

Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Alabama, Clayton has published numerous, award-winning scholarly works. His first inspirational book, Cleared for Landing (ExLibris, 2008) is a primer for Christians, focusing on the practice of faith.

"I'm a pilot and to be a good and safe pilot one needs to practice and grow all the time, just like in your Christian walk,” he says, adding, "I wrote this book for those who want to grow in their faith, and I invite them to join me on this journey that will renew and revitalize them as a Christian.”

Larry Clayton also writes a weekly column for the Tuscaloosa News. He graduated from Duke University in 1964, subsequently earning a master's degree and a doctorate in Latin American history from Tulane University. He served as an officer in the U.S. Navy from 1964-1966. While on the faculty at the University of Alabama from 1972-2013, Clayton directed the Latin American Studies Program and was Chair of the Department of History.
