Childs shows how businesspeople can bring their religious convictions to bear on business life and economics without being overbearing, provincial, or dogmatic. Tackling such topics as competition, regulation, environment, risk, truth-telling, whistle-blowing, leadership, discrimimination affirmative action, and conflict resolution,Childs is neither preachy nor simplistic. This is the book that will at last help businesspeople to push "beyond conventional morality" and infuse character into corporate culture.
