Business for the Common Good: A Christian Vision for the Marketplace (Christian Worldview Integration)

by Kenman L. Wong and Scott B. Rae

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: <ul> <li>What implications does the Christian story have for the vision, mission or sense of purpose that shapes business engagement?</li> <li>What parts of business can be affirmed and practiced "as is" and what parts need to be rejected or transformed? </li> <li>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? </li> <li>How do Christian values inform specific functional areas of business such as the management of people, marketing and environmental sustainability? </li> </ul> 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.
