    Easy to read and understand the theology behind why work is important in God's eyes. Highly recommend it.

    It seems to me the author find verses in the Bible which support the fundamental ideas of business. And it seems that these very basic ideas are unknown or unheard in the church environment. Therefore this book came out to give general views of "Bible supports business". Of which, I totally support.

    However, any Christian business man or women practicing honest business would find this book is kind of watching and touching the surface of a business from a distance. I found Bible principles not only support the idea of business, it also guides the practice of business. I would very much like to found the discussion of using Bible principle for the business practice.

    The value of a business depends on the way it practices. Every business has a business culture. The creativity of a business, the moral of a business, the entrepreneur spirit of a business, etc. are the essence of a business. I found Bible not only support business but also give insights and guide in the practice and growth of a business. Unfortunately, I didn't see much of these in the book.

    I didn't find much value in this book. To me it is like a children's book in the business world and I don't want to recommend to anyone.

    This review was written for Business for the Glory of God.
    There are a lot of books out there about business and quite a few more out there about theology. Wayne Grudem's Business for the Glory of God is a rare breed, tackling business and theology while stubbornly refusing to fall into the category of "subjective professional advice from a successful business person who also happens to be a convert of Jesus Christ." Grudem is ever the theology teacher, hardly to be confused with a successful CEO, and so his contribution is unique.

    Most books on business written by professing Christians are published with the goal of success. As you read, you should find tips and tricks and strategy to make you more effective in your professional life. Grudem has a diametrically different purpose (17): to show that business offers "multiple layers of opportunities to give glory to God, as well as multiple temptations to sin." It becomes clear that this is not business with a sugar-coat of God-talk; this is business from a distinctly God-oriented perspective.

    Grudem weaves his way through nine chapters where he applies his thesis (opportunities to glorify God or to sin) to different areas of commerce: ownership, productivity, employment, commercial transactions, profit, money, inequality of possessions, competition, and borrowing and lending. He does not offer grandiose solutions to ethical dilemmas. Instead, Grudem draws insightful connections to biblical narratives and gospel teaching designed to help one think more Christianly about business.

    The book ends with two small chapters in which the reader is charged to consider the attitude beyond the principals discussed and to consider the effect business could have on world poverty. In all, Grudem offers a refreshingly Bible-based perspective. He does not sell his book through claims of success, or make that the focal issue. If you are interested or involved in business, you can afford to read this 83 page blueprint for developing a God-oriented perspective of commerce for yourself.

    This review was written for Business for the Glory of God.
    This is an outstanding little book! Dr Grudem explores the topic most of us have to deal with every day - work. He tears down common misconceptions about business and work and offers a fresh perspective. Grudem shows how business is good and how it can be used to glorify God. Although enjoyable and easy to read, this is a very thought provoking and even life changing book. After reading it, you will not view your job or business in general the same!
