Business for the Common Good: A Christian Vision for the Marketplace

Business as Mission

Author: Wong, Kenman L. & Rae, Scott B. 2011

ISBN-13: 978-0830828166

Wong and Rae start with the premise that business is a calling, but then ask, “a calling to what?”. Other authors take the stance that business is God’s calling for some of us. Wong and Rae begin at the other end: changing business into God’s calling, that is moving from business to calling through business. They outline some of the real ethical and spiritual issues for a person who does business as a calling. Interestingly enough, the authors conclude that the real issues of business are part of a person’s spiritual formation by challenging one’s faith. One of the best chapters in this book is the one on globalization, which gives both sides of the globalization debate in a very succinct way.
