Is business just a way to make money? Or can the marketplace a venue for service to others?
^^Scott B. Rae and Kenman L. Wong seek to explore this and other critical business issues from a uniquely Christian perspective, offering up a vision for work and service that is theologically grounded and practically oriented. Among the specific questions they address along the way are these:
^^^What implications does the Christian story have for the vision, mission or sense of purpose that shapes business engagement? ^^^^What parts of business can be affirmed and practiced "as is" and what parts need to be rejected or transformed? ^^^^What challenges exist as attempts are made to live out Christian ideals in a broken world characterized by tight margins, fierce competition and short-term investor pressures? ^^^^How do Christian values inform specific functional areas of business such as the management of people, marketing and environmental sustainability? ^^Business can be even more than an environment through which individual Christians grow in Christlikeness. In this book you'll discover how it can also be a means toward serving the common good.^^
Kenman L. Wong (Ph.D., University of Southern California) is professor of business ethics at Seattle Pacific University.
