Business for the Common Good [Book]
Is business just a way to make money? Or can the marketplace a venue for service to others? Scott B. Rae and Kenman L. Wong seek to explore this and other critical business issues from a uniquely Christian perspective, offering up a vision for work and service that is theologically grounded and practically oriented. Among the specific questions they address along the way are these:
- What implications does the Christian story have for the vision, mission or sense of purpose that shapes business engagement?
- What parts of business can be affirmed and practiced "as is" and what parts need to be rejected or transformed?
- What challenges exist as attempts are made to live out Christian ideals in a broken world characterized by tight margins, fierce competition and short-term investor pressures?
- How do Christian values inform specific functional areas of business such as the management of people, marketing and environmental sustainability?
