Publisher's Description

The Catholic Briefcase helps Catholics integrate their faith with their jobs through practical tips, relevant examples, and the inspirational stories of others who have successfully learned how to bring their Catholic identity with them to work. This book provides tips and ideas for finding time for prayer and reflection throughout the day and explores ways to make business decisions through the filter of Catholic teaching. Being a "light for Christ" is ultimately the best way to share your faith with others as they will be drawn to you by your good example and joy. The Catholic Briefcase helps the reader evaluate where they have been in their business life and where being a "light for Christ" can take them. The practical nature of the content gives the reader a roadmap to a deeper faith in an area (the workplace) they have likely ignored in the past.

Editorial Reviews

The Catholic Briefcase is vintage Randy Hain. Easy to read, orthodox in content with specificity for application. A pragmatic blend of Church teaching and documented examples reinforce not only an important message for our times, but the specific cases give added believability and hope for Catholic's in their own "marketplace ministry". I highly recommend it.
Practical and powerful! Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, I think you will benefit tremendously from reading this book.
The Catholic Briefcase offers every Catholic helpful insights in navigating the complex and sometimes difficult challenges to integrating our work and faith lives.
While some Catholic professionals might struggle with the integration of their faith and their work, my bet is that many more of us just don't think about it at all.

With practical tips on how to integrate our Catholicism with our careers, we learn how our faith can make us better businesspeople--and how our jobs can make us saints.
…Faith-filled practicing Catholics will be affirmed, renewed, and uplifted as they do their best to apply Catholic principles at the office. Those beginning their journey will receive sound advice and will come away with a clear understanding of the true harmony that exists between faith and work.
Whether your workplace is the courtroom or the kitchen, Wall Street or the corner market, The Catholic Briefcase belongs on your reading list…Randy Hain offers real world scenarios and shines light on scores of Catholics who strive to balance saintliness and productivity.

The strength of The Catholic Briefcase is in its practicality. Randy not only lays out guiding principles for integrating faith and work; he also does an excellent job of exploring tangible ways to live those principles in the daily grind…Buy it, read it, give it to a coworker, and buy it again!
