Doing Virtuous Business: The Remarkable Success of Spiritual Enterprise [Hardcover]
Theodore Roosevelt Malloch (Author)
Jeremiah 29:4-7 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: (5) Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. (6) Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. (7) Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
How Christians conduct their business affairs deeply matters to God and greatly affects the world around us. This was my take away from this book. Let me say that as a pastor, this book was not that engaging to me. I have my undergrad in Business Management. So, I understood all the economic ideas and views on capitalism the writer was proposing. I also agreed with most of his conclusions in advance. So, I did not take away much new. But, for someone who wants to see what a Christian should look like this is a nice start. It is a little technical at times as well. For an easier read on a similar topic I would recommend Wayne Grudem’s “Business For the Glory of God.” It is not as through or detailed.
