Five Minutes on Mondays: Finding Unexpected Purpose, Peace, and Fulfillment at Work


Five Minutes on Mondays is a gold mine of enrichment…It is an easy read with a deep and profound impact.”

Martin Rutte, Chair of the Board, The Centre for Spirituality and the Workplace, Saint Mary’s University, co-author of New York Times business best-seller, Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work


“Lurie’s wise and wonderful book should grace every karmic capitalist’s bookshelf. He reminds us that finding a sense of meaning and purpose in what we do may align us with unimagined success and a profound awakening to who we are.”

Chip Conley, CEO, Joie de Vivre Hotels


“Read Lurie’s suggestions to elevate your spirit–then bring that spirit to your work. The promise is; both you and your client will be more fulfilled, more satisfied, and more engaged in your business relationship.”

John King, Senior Partner, CultureSync, and coauthor of Tribal Leadership


Five Minutes on Mondays is a book of savvy and surprises. Lurie offers a tasting menu of wisdom, counsel, insight, psychology, and wonderful stories. But be warned, these little servings will last on your palate far longer than the five minutes it takes to consume them.”

Peter Pitzele, Ph.D., author of Our Fathers’ Wells: A Personal Encounter with the Myths of Genesis and Scripture Windows: Toward a Practice of Bibliodrama


“Lurie’s book is a gem–a must-read for anyone who works at their faith and believes in their work. Business professionals of all kinds and from all religious traditions will find Lurie’s light touch and real-world applications helpful as they strive to succeed without selling their soul.” 

David W. Miller, Ph.D., Director, Princeton University Faith & Work Initiative, and President, The Avodah Institute 


     Imagine the leaders of one of New York City’s top real-estate firms coming together every Monday morning to hear…the moral and spiritual thoughts of a Rabbi.

     Imagine them returning, week after week…coming to eagerly anticipate those five minutes as a moment of uncommon peace in the world’s most brutally competitive environment.  

     Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall? To hear the paths Alan Lurie traced for his listeners, how he helped them bring together their spiritual and business lives, the sacred and the profane? Five Minutes on Mondays compiles these talks for the first time, sharing Lurie’s deep and profound inspiration on the challenges we all face–at work, and in life.

     Lurie draws on millennia of philosophy, theology, and science to help us answer our deepest questions, comfort our deepest yearnings, and become better people–more connected to each other, and to the Greater Purpose.
