Product Description

What would Jesus do--on the job? Here, 60 businessmen and women--including executives from Intel, Boeing, Google, Coca-Cola and eBay-- offer professionals fresh insights on how to practically apply biblical principles to their jobs. From maintaining personal integrity, defending your faith, persevering through difficult situations to dealing honestly and fairly with others, each devotional topic directly applies to a challenge encountered in the workplace. A relevant Scripture and question for application helps you reflect on and apply the pertinent truths they find in that day's devotion. Rather than compartmentalizing their "work life" and their "church life,' business professionals will be inspired to surrender all parts of their lives fully to the Lord. 224 pages, hardcover.

Publisher's Description

What would Jesus do—on the job? Here, 60 businessmen and women offer professionals fresh insights on how to practically apply biblical principles to their jobs. From maintaining personal integrity, defending your faith, persevering through difficult situations to dealing honestly and fairly with others, each devotional topic directly applies to a challenge encountered in the workplace. A relevant Scripture and question for application helps readers reflect on and apply the pertinent truths they find in that day’s devotion. Rather than compartmentalizing their "work life" and their "church life," business professionals will be inspired to surrender all parts of their lives fully to the Lord. Readers will come away with a better understanding of how their work matters to God and how their faith can influence every aspect of their professional life.

In the Old Testament, the prophets would complain to God that they, alone, were the only ones living righteously for Him. God would respond that such talk was nonsense, as he did to Elijah when He said there were "thousands who have not bent a knee to Baal." The sixty devotions written by business executives in Devotional Ventures, as compiled by Corey Cleek, reveal that anyone in 21st century America who feels that he or she is the only voice for God in the business arena is wrong--there are many, many strong Christians in key executive positions who are taking a strong stance for the Lord.
The devotions found here are written by university business professors, marketing executives, company CEOs, successful entrepreneurs, and financial managers with some of the largest corporations in the world, including Dell Computers, Coca-Cola Bottling, Kentucky Fried Chicken, State Farm Insurance, and CBS television. What's more, they are well written, showing solid knowledge of the Scriptures and offering pragmatic applications to contemporary life in the marketplace.
My personal favorite devotion is a very humorous, yet realistic, piece called "MBA: Master of Baby Administration," by Shelly Culpepper, former marketing manager with General Motors. Mrs. Culpepper tells about the dilemma she faced at age 32 when she was holding down a major executive position with a corporation and she found out she was pregnant. After years of college and graduate school training and working her way to the top, would she give it all up just to stay home and rear her daughter? It was a true struggle, but in the end she and her husband felt motherhood was a full-time calling. They never regretted the decision.
Another superb devotion that makes a simple, yet very powerful point is, "Remember Who You Are and Whom You Represent," by Gary Daichendt, executive vice president of Cisco Systems. Daichendt reminds us that, unlike in the corporate arena, we don't have to schedule an appointment to see Jesus or try to get on a committee with Him. He's always available. Furthermore, He is more important than the board chairman of GM or even the president of the United States; and we not only have access to Him, we represent Him. Why be intimidated by anyone in business when we represent the One who sets up and disposes of kingdoms?
Each of the 60 devotions begins with a passage of Scripture, concludes with a summary "Point to Ponder," and then presents three "Questions to Consider" related to the topic just covered. As such, this could be a good book for a couple of months of daily personal devotions, or it could serve as a roundtable discussion starter for Christians gathering for lunch at the workplace. Highly recommended. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, Christian Book Previews.com

    Excellent for a short devotional with a group. I am using it for a fellowship at an MBA program.
