Item description for God in the Marketplace: 45 Questions Fortune 500 Executives Ask about Faith, Life, and Business by Henry Blackaby & Richard Blackaby...
Overview A unique guide helps everyone--from the front desk to the executive suite--experience God's will in his or her work, helping them better understand what the Bible says about integrating their Christian faith with their work lives.
Publishers Description Aside from "Experiencing God," Henry Blackaby has made his greatest impact by ministering directly to Fortune 100 and 500 CEOs, advising them on how to effectively blend their faith with their business. Out of that ministry's success comes "God in the Marketplace," a book to help everyone from the front desk to the executive suite best experience God's will in his or her work.
Blackaby believes that just as Jesus had businessmen among His original disciples, so may God be calling out businesspeople today in preparation for a worldwide spiritual revival. However, while those in the marketplace may have excellent educations and access to world-class leadership seminars, they often feel inadequate in matters of spiritual influence. "God in the Marketplace "will help them better understand what the Bible says about integrating their Christian faith with their work lives and provide biblical answers to the common yet difficult questions that are often raised for Christians at work. Endorsements: "Each page challenges 'conventional wisdom' with time-tested truth. Tremendous insights." --John D. Beckett, chairman, R. W. Beckett Corporation, and author of "Loving Monday" and "Mastering Monday" "Clear, biblical perspectives. A 'must-read' for those seeking to achieve personal and business accomplishment." --David "Mac" McQuiston, president and CEO, CEO Forum Inc. "Relevant, helpful, instructive, and encouraging." --Ron F. Wagley, chairman, CEO, and president; retired, Transamerica Insurance & Investment Group

More About Henry Blackaby & Richard Blackaby
Henry T. Blackaby is the founder and president emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International, an organization built to help people experience God.
Born in British Columbia, Dr. Blackaby has devoted his lifetime to ministry. He has served as a music director, education director, and pastor in churches in California and Canada, as well as president of Canadian Baptist Theological College for seven years and president of the Canadian Southern Baptist Conference.

Dr. Blackaby studied English and history at the University of British Columbia as an undergraduate and earned his B.D. and Th.M. from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds four honorary doctorate degrees.
In 1970, Dr. Blackaby followed God’s call to pastor a tiny church in Saskatoon, Canada. Not only did Faith Baptist Church grow to many times its original membership, but it led to the founding of thirty-eight new churches and became a center for pastoral training.

Through the Home Mission Board, he led revival and spiritual awakening in the life of the convention.

Although he is now officially retired, Dr. Blackaby continues to provide consultative leadership in the life of the Christian community.

His books, Experiencing God Together and Experiencing God Day by Day Devotional, both won the Gold Medallion Award.
Henry lives with his wife, Marilynn, in Rex, Georgia. He has five children (Richard, Tom, Melvin, Norman, and Carrie), all of whom are serving in Christian ministry, and fourteen grandchildren. His long-range goal is to encourage revival and spiritual awakening in the United States, Canada, and across the world through speaking, praying, enlisting, writing and mentoring.

Reviews - What do customers think about God In The Marketplace?
God really wants to be in the Marketplace! Jul 23, 2009
This is a great read IF you believe, that God really wants to be in the Marketplace. I read my books (no Kindle:-) ) with a Highlighter and this book may very well burn through two of them. Terrific insights and profound, thought provoking questions This book will bring your Faith right dowm to where the rubber meets the pavement.
Experiencing God in the Marketplace Aug 17, 2008
Building on Henry Blackaby's landmark book and study, Experiencing God, this book takes the profound concepts introduced there and applies them to the market place. The sweeping implications of "waiting on the Lord for Him to reveal His vision for your business life", is present throughout the book, and challenged me to reexamine most of what I've learned through the best leadership development courses, books and studies that the secular world has to offer. This is a MUST READ for the business person seeking to honor God with the whole of their lives ... especially in the often dog-eat-dog, every-man-for-himself world of modern business.
Execellent for Christians May 30, 2008
This is an excellent study guide for Christians in the workplace. Plenty of scripture review and thought provoking questions. Deals from the position of as a Christian how do I deal with so much hipocrasy in the workplace, how do I answer people's questions about my Christianity and finally how do I witness each and every day.
