Description

We are living in the Business Age. The historic role of nation states is rapidly being replaced by the corporation. Like never before, Christian business leaders have the chance to play a pivotal role in transforming society and spreading the gospel. But seizing this opportunity requires thinking differently about God, about his kingdom, about his purposes in the world, and about business.

While some Christian professionals dream of being “freed from business” to go into the ministry or see business as enemy territory to be invaded for Christ, others are convinced that Christian principles simply don’t work in the “real world.” In Business as Mission, Michael Baer challenges each of these positions. He rejects the unbiblical thinking that ministry and business are by definition separate activities — that our lives can be compartmentalized into the sacred and secular. Instead he guides business leaders in developing the vital characteristics of a kingdom business — the kind of business that will free them to live fully integrated lives and lead organizations that significantly impact the world.

“A great movement is beginning across the North America and around the world – the kingdom business or “business as mission” movement. I say this is a great movement not because it is large, but because I sense the hand of God in it and see a huge potential for impacting the world for Christ.

Imagine what could happen if every Christian businessperson recognized that God had a purpose for his or her company that was greater than profit, employment, or customer satisfaction. Imagine if the vast number of believing business owners and operators were to turn their companies over to God to use for His glory. Imagine the power and joy of integrating business and faith for God’s kingdom.

Think of the financial, technological, and human resources that would come into play. Think of the ways in which entire societies could be transformed for Christ.”

– Michael R. Baer, author, from the preface to Business as Mission
