Author: Tsukahira, Peter. 2009

ISBN-13: 978-0882708713

The author begins with his own story as a professional who found Christ and learned how to be a Christian professional in the marketplace. He is clear and honest about the dilemmas of that choice. He provides many stories and practical advice for those who want to work as a professional and serve God in the marketplace. While stories of business failure abound, this author looks at them biblically and highlights businesses that reinvent themselves when the market changes. Tsukahira brings 2 concepts to the discourse of B4B: worship and prayer. He believes that true worship is bowing down to God in the fire of adversity, citing the examples of Job, David and Jesus. In the midst of the struggles of business, bowing to God, praying and bringing him a sacrifice of excellence every day is true worship that sows the seeds of transformation in the business environment.
