I am the author of Customer Service and the Imitation of Christ. In this book I tell about my experiences working as a disciple of Christ in customer service call centers, both before and after earning my PhD in philosophy. For those who don’t specialize in customer service, I explain in detail why it’s so hard to get good service; for those who do, I give specifics about how God has helped me cope with the peculiar challenges of customer service work.

What Does God Do from 9 to 5? outlines my philosophy of God in the work world. I am a philosophy professor, after all! But seriously, I have talked to many Christians who have trouble finding God working in their lives while they’re engaged in secular work, and I believe this is largely due to the fact that they’re thinking wrong – either about God or about their work.

Spoiler Alert! In this book, I argue that it’s helpful for us to view our lives as stories and to look for the ways that God plays an editorial role in those stories.

This book, too, is available in both paperback and digital versions. (I have not yet produced an audio version.) Here are the links:

*Barnes and Noble (including Nook version)

Small World is a humorous mystery/suspense novel. (Shhh! It’s actually a modern-day parable, but don’t tell anybody.) A TV journalist and a professor of ancient languages have ten days to find an alien named Basil or the world will be destroyed. They don’t know anything about him or where in the world he is. They do have a hand-held device that gives them clues, but it communicates in a language only the professor can read, and the journalist has excellent reasons for doubting the professor’s sanity.

Along the way, they get into a number of misadventures: they kidnap a Reality TV star, they find it necessary to trust an ex-convict with a mysterious past, and they get help from a dysfunctional family of cloned geniuses, all while staying one step ahead of soldiers, gangsters, and journalists from all the other networks.

Kirkus Reviews calls Small World “a snide, witty, completely entertaining romp through human nature and all its foibles… Johnson, a philosophy professor, has more up his sleeve than great writing and a funny, extremely readable story; readers will also have fun searching between the lines for deeper implications and references.” Click here to read the entire review.
