Overview In an age when business is moving faster and faster and when ethics are being stretched to the limit, where does the Christian look for guidance in facing workplace problems?

A theologian, a business executive and a business school professor examine the foundatons of ethical decision-making in a Christian context. It includes a biblical overview of Christian ethics; lessons that can be gleaned from 'case' studies of Bible stories and parables; an overview of the philosophical concept of ethics and the seven-level Towle/Hilgert model of "ethical levels"; overview of the various ethical models and applications; and application of Christian ethics in the workplace, whether on the corporate/executive level or in a small-business setting. The book includes case studies and discussion questions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Ethics in the Workplace?
A book that you can use as reference guide Oct 4, 2007
Christian Ethics in the Workplace is a relatively quick read; however, it is not light reading. Hilgert, Lochhaas and Truesdell detail real-life situations where the right choice isn't as neat as clean as many other books would imply. They then provide guidelines for logical, systematic consideration of conflicts from a Christian perspective.
This book would be an excellent gift for anyone moving into a supervisory position.
Three Fold Look at Christ With Us At Work May 2, 2002
A philosophy/ethics prof, a pastor, and a business executive join to produce a small, but masterful delving into the area of Christian business ethics.
As Luther was major influence of the restoration of work as a pleasing service to God (also see the fine work, "Your Work Matters to God), these Lutherans present the topic from each of their expertise and background.
Sprinkled throughout are Case Studies, Bible Studies, and Questions for Answering and Discussion, making this a worthy individual or Bible Study group read.
Their approach and admonitions are concise and Biblical, and at the same time, cognizant of the implications in the practical, realitistic world of the "dog eat dog" world that most professions are.
Taking Christ with us where we spend a great deal of time at work is the significant theme, and provides much for one to think and pray and apply, all the time seeking to be pleasing to our God and of service to our employers, employees and customers.
An important work in this age of pragmatism, realtivism and pluralism, while at the same time seeking not to develop attack Christians who flaunt a Moral Majority type seize and capture mentality. Well balanced and written guide for the Christian exploring how to be of further service to the Good Lord.
