Item description for Doing Business by the Good Book: Fifty-Two Lessons on Success Sraight from the Bible by David L. Steward & Robert L. Shook...

Provides passages from the Bible that offer guidance on ways to conduct business effectively.

Publishers Description
An indispensable volume that shows how to succeed in business by using the Bible and its lessons as a source of inspiration and guidance n 1990, David L. Steward founded his company, Worldwide Technology, Inc., on a shoestring budget and borrowed money, well aware of the high-risk nature of the venture he was undertaking. Despite the fact that he was a novice entrepreneur, he was certain he would succeed. Steward believed intensely that God wouldn't let him down.Doing Business by the Good Book shares the inspiring lessons culled straight from the Bible, that Steward used to build his privately held billion-dollar company into a global information technology enterprise.

From Publishers Weekly
Jesus' teachings were not meant to be spoken only on Sunday, writes Steward, CEO of World Wide Technology Inc., the world's largest African-American-owned company. Rather, those teachings were meant to be implemented everywhere, including the workplace. In this book, Steward shares 52 biblical principles in short, easy-to-read chapters that can be digested once a week for a full year or devoured in one sitting. Steward draws heavily on his own knowledge of building a high-tech company from the ground up, and also his corporate experiences at FedEx and Union Pacific. He has a real knack for helping readers see how biblical principles relate to those experiences and to contemporary business issues. Even the trendy notion of "branding" is placed thoughtfully with a relevant Scripture (Matthew 12:33: "Either make the tree good, and its fruit good, or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit."). Christian businesspeople who want a solid introduction to biblical ethics in the workplace will particularly enjoy his fine chapters on accountability, enthusiasm, customer satisfaction and networking.

Reviews - What do customers think about Doing Business by the Good Book: Fifty-Two Lessons on Success Sraight from the Bible?

Business tips straight from the Bible  May 30, 2007
This book's subtitle, 52 Lessons on Success Straight from the Bible, captures its appeal but also indicates why it might turn away nonreligious readers. David L. Steward's ethical lessons are admirable. He divides his advice into weekly units, making it easy to apply. (This also reflects the book's roots in a weekly church-based study group). However, though Steward sees his lessons as straightforward, many readers might find his logic a little challenging. For example, he draws the lesson of niche marketing from Matthew 6:24, "No man can serve two masters." This makes interesting sense at first. However, while his later expansion into a second niche may offer a good business example, is it Biblical? Not as much. The chapter on the blessings of living in America seems even less scriptural, but many sections of the book do make good use of Biblical values as business guideposts. Steward's felicitous examples from his own successes make it easy to understand his points. We recommend his warm, inspirational guidebook to spiritually inclined readers who are interested in using their beliefs to reinforce ethical business practices.
Wonderful, enlightening book  Feb 10, 2007
A wonderful book for anyone interested in running their business, ministry or church using principles that will make you a better boss and a better person.

I highly recommend it to everyone.
Excellent Read  Jan 16, 2007
This book is an excellent example of how servant leadership can really work in the business world. It is a relatively short read, but packed with applicable Christian principles as well as a recipe for implementation in the corporate realm.
A fast and exciting read...awesome insight!  Mar 24, 2006
His principles are 'right on' and he is sincere in his message. So relavent for those of us who seek to better integrate our business lives and spritual lives. Every chapter makes the reader eager to see what's next.
Very Clear concepts great value  Jun 29, 2005
