The genius of this book is that it avoids simplistic thinking on Christian ethics while offering an alternative to the many business texts that ignore or slight Christian perspective. A typical chapter contains an introduction, one or more readings from journal articles (Christian and secular), one or more case studies, and commentary on the cases.

Integrity is essential to Judeo-Christian business ethics. But today's business environment is complex. Those in business, and those preparing to enter the business world, need to grapple with the question of how integrity and biblical ethics can be applied in the workplace. They need to go 'beyond integrity' in their thinking. Beyond Integrity is neither excessively theoretical nor simplistic and dogmatic. Rather, it offers a balanced and pragmatic approach to a number of concrete ethical issues. Readings from a wide range of sources present competing perspectives on each issue, and real-life case studies further help the reader grapple with ethical dilemmas. The authors conclude each chapter with their own distinctly Christian commentary on the topic covered. This second edition includes recent issues that have surfaced in today's constantly changing business culture. Revisions include: * Ethical implications of information technology, biotechnology, and other important new issues * Reflections on recent court cases that shape the moral discussion * Shorter text with increased accessibility to the reader With the goal of helping readers arrive at their own conclusions, this book provides a decision-making model. Beyond Integrity equips men and women to develop a biblically based approach to the ethical challenges of twenty-first century business.
