Author(s): R. Paul Stevens
Christians have likely been struggling with the place of business in the life of faith ever since Paul's days as a tentmaker. Just how do the spheres of private devotion and public business intersect in a meaningful way? Paul Stevens has been exploring this question since his earliest working days in his father's steel business. His "Doing God's Business" tells how readers can find lasting and satisfying meaning for marketplace involvement in the light of the Christian faith and tradition. Stevens explores the potential of business as a location for practicing everyday spiritual disciplines and as a source of creativity and deeper relationship with God.
"Why wasn't this book available when I started out as a young businessman fifty years ago? It would have given me a much needed theology of the workplace at a time when the notion of having a 'calling' to the workplace was considered a heresy!" - William E Diehl, author of Thank God Its Monday
R Paul Stevens is the David J Brown Family Professor Emeritus of Marketplace Theology and Leadership at Regent College, Vancouver. His numerous books include The Other Six Days and with Michael Green, Living the Story, published by Eerdmans.
