Publisher's Summary

Can business activity in itself be morally good and pleasing to God? Sometimes business can seem so shady-manipulating the "bottom line", deceiving the consumer, or gaining promotions because of whom you know. But Wayne Grudem introduces a novel concept: business itself glorifies God when it is conducted in a way that imitates God's character and creation. He shows that all aspects of business,including ownership, profit, money, competition, and borrowing and lending, glorify God because they are reflective of God's nature.
Though Grudem isn't naive about the easy ways these activities can be perverted and used as a means to sin, he knows that Christians can be about the business of business. This biblically based book is a thoughtful guide to imitating God during interactions with customers, coworkers, employees, and other businesses. See how your business, and your life in business, can be dedicated to God's glory.

sufficient handling of basic business philosophy

pro:
- it was short and to the point
- it left out a lot of fluff and dealt with basic concepts like profit, trade, productivity
- it seems to have the strength of experience and not just ivory tower conjecture
- it helped to bring about some "aha" moments even though I do not share all of the same opinions or interpretations as the author.

con:
- the author seems to make snap judgements about government decisions that are bad for the way he thinks business must fuction. He even calls them "evil". However I am glad that he does not go on a political rant to back up his opinion. So this was not a deal-breaker if you can overlook it.
- while there is much good discussion and argumentation, some of the points and concepts are not worked out in a logical explanatory discussion or provided with much argument to chew on. I suspect the times where this happens are closely related to my first con remark. People don't think they need to debate something when they assume it just has to be that way.

A bit disappointed, shallow and sometimes redundant

There is so much more about business and the advancement of the Kingdom. So many traps that he doesn't go to. What business should believers stay away from? Are all sectors of business ok?
I had an expectation for more.
