i would not recommend you to read this book Feb 14, 2003
I was assigned to read this book for social religion class. I did not find it very interesting to read. most of the stories are business stereotype. The book itself is very confusing. It seems that it keeps repeating itself- over and over.
just business a great look at Christian business Feb 3, 2003
This book is clear, concise, and draws from numerous well-regarded sources. The examples are enjoyable and the discussion questions are thought provoking.
Theologically ill-informed Sep 23, 2001
I am a theologian-philosopher looking for a decent book on CHRISTIAN ethics in the marketplace, which this book claims to be. But I found the arguments and conclusions in this book to be based on some very shaky premises.
The author seems to be knowledgeable about the business world, and have read much from business texts and journals. However, since this is a CHRISTIAN ethic, proficiency with the Scripture is necessary. This I find lacking in the author. And so, many of his conclusions are in fact based on the "common sense" out there instead of the Scripture, although he tries to force his conclusions to say that they are in accordance with Christianity.
One who writes on Christian ethics should be proficient in both theology and philosophy, besides being informed about business situations as well. I lack the last of these three, and was hoping to remedy that partly with this book, but the author is so deficient on the first two that this book is not helpful at all.
I would instead recommend books by Gordon Clark and Vincent Cheung. Search the web for "trinity foundation" and "vincent cheung", and I think you will find them. Cheung's books are free for download.
