Publisher's Description

You don’t need to quit your day job to serve God.

Do you find it difficult to work with joy? Do you have a hard time with coworkers? Is your identity wrapped up in your job?

Many Christian leaders struggle to bridge the gap between the sacred and the secular—particularly at work. Raymond Harris addressed this dilemma and found true success as one of the most prolific American architects.

Business by Design draws upon biblical principles and life experiences to help you:
  • avoid the swirl of busyness and develop an eternity-driven mind-set.
  • exceed worldly standards and demonstrate generosity, compassion, forgiveness, and diligence.
  • look beyond your own needs and use profits to promote God’s kingdom.
  • let go of feeling you’re not doing enough for God and recognize your service to Him at work.
The teachings and example of Jesus can transform your professional life and make you more effective in the workplace. Join your faith and work, and discover your ultimate purpose.

Editorial Reviews

Jesus is "not just nice," wrote Dallas Willard the theologian and philosopher, "He is brilliant. He always has the best information on everything." Indeed, in Business by Design by Raymond Harris, we are invited to see the very real-world brilliance of Jesus as it applies to the practical strategy, decision-making, people management, and deeper purpose of business and enterprise. For leaders seeking first-class excellence in both entrepreneurial endeavor and Christian integrity of life, Harris delivers a thoughtful meditation and testimony on what it looks like to apply the profound spiritual teachings of Jesus to the pragmatic, real-life challenges of business endeavor at the highest level.
- Gary Haugen, CEO of International Justice Mission

Business by Design is a game changer, but not because it teaches a new business theory. Rather, it is built on the timeless truths of the Bible. It is wonderfully authentic because the author, Raymond Harris, has lived the principles he is communicating. I heartily recommend it!
- Howard Dayton, founder Compass - Finances God’s Way 

Business by Design captures the essence of doing business by God’s Design. Whether working, running a business, or being in a ministry, Raymond articulates these business principles and shares his personal stories that apply in today’s world. I recommend this to everyone working.
- Josh McDowell, speaker and author

Saturated in the Scriptures and filled with practical wisdom, Business by Design is a work of love that will bless your circle of influence. Raymond’s keen insights and personal stories will appeal to both the head and the heart. If you are looking for next steps in how you might be a light in your world, look no further.
- Adam C. Wright, Ph.D., president of Dallas Baptist University

We live in a success-obsessed culture and world. The speed of innovation and sheer amount of information available today can add immense pressure on those trying to achieve in their business endeavors. Where does one turn to do find a solid foundation? How do we measure success? Business by Design builds on Raymond Harris’s lifetime of experience building an architectural firm that’s successful by any definition, and lays out practical, biblical principles that anyone who wants to have a life that counts can depend on. Psalm 37:4 says this: "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." You were designed for success, but success the way God defines it.
- Kevin Palau, Luis Palau Association, author

An outstanding businessman, Raymond Harris is well grounded spiritually, as well as professionally, and has clearly demonstrated his gift of writing. Raymond exhibits this ability by having the skill to paint vivid pictures with his words the same way an artist does with his paints and brush. His book Business by Design is a very useful tool, which provides a guide to the reader on how to balance the cut-throat world of business principles and practices with one’s faith. This is a difficult road to travel, but Raymond, through this work, gives us a roadmap. It is then up to us to determine if we choose to follow it.
- Mike Moncreif, retired mayor, Fort Worth, Texas

Wisdom happens when the truth of God’s Word intersects with the horizontal experience of our everyday life and we respond appropriately. Business by Design is without a doubt one of the best books I have read that models and mentors how to allow the truth of God to transform everyday life on the job into a spiritual and yet successful pursuit. Raymond Harris may be an incredible architect but he is also an inspiring writer. I will be handing out copies for years.
- Mark L. Bailey, president of Dallas Theological Seminary
