BAM Global Movement: Business As Mission--Concept & Stories
Ideas regarding mission, church, and charity are shifting and a growing number of Christians—whether in an agricultural town in California, an urban center in Europe, South America, or Asia, or somewhere within a restricted city—are seeking a missional way of living out the whole incarnated gospel, striving to promote the in-breaking kingdom of God wherever they work and live.
Business as Mission (BAM) is an exciting and growing global movement, with Christians active in business, charity, and church on a journey to integrate business with holistic mission. But what exactly is BAM? What does it mean to do “Business as Mission”? In this book, Gea Gort and Mats Tunehag explain the BAM concept through theory and theology, along with real-life examples from all over the world.
The inspiring stories of thirty practitioners active on all continents provide insight into how gospel shalom can be shared in innovative and practical ways in challenging settings: in developing nations, in secularized Western cities, or in closed countries. This book will capture your mind and heart, as well as provide a broad overview of this remarkable paradigm-shifting way of doing business and mission.
