Publishers Description What would Jesus do--on the job? Here, 60 businessmen and women offer professionals fresh insights on how to practically apply biblical principles to their jobs.

Reviews - What do customers think about Devotional Ventures?
Timely, relevant Feb 1, 2007
I've read a lot of canned and well rehearsed devotionals by preachers and was truly grateful to see someone put this together for professionals who live in a different world. When does the next one come out? Highly recommended.
Required Reading; Timely and Relevant! Jan 28, 2007
From the boardrooms of Wall Street to the Mom & Pop shops on main street, this is how America should be conducting it's business!
Very inspirational Jan 13, 2007
This book is very inspirational and truly a blessing to me each time I read these devotionals and their probing questions. It is rare today to find positive material on America's senior managers in the news or in publication. There are many worldly men that worship these authors but each of these authors humbles themselves to their savior through their devotional. Great job men and look forward meeting all of you either in the workplace or in eternity.
