How can traditional Christian teachings help corporate executives make ethical business decisions? That's what Peet van Biljon and James C Sprouse address in their new book. Satisfied that they are working for legal businesses and already adhering to corporate and professional ethical standards, too many executives separate their work lives from the practice of their faith. Business decisions greatly affect the lives of employees, customers, suppliers, and society at large. In pursuit of profits, businesses may underpay and overwork employees, use unethical sales techniques, sell dangerous products to vulnerable consumers, cut costs so it harms people, and take other questionable actions that while legal, do not conform to Christian values. It doesn't have to be this way. In this new guide you will learn and be challenged to make better choices based on Biblical values. By placing detailed analyses of core business practices side by side with Biblical texts and guidance, this book identifies many potential areas for improvement. Whether it is providing a framework to navigate the challenges of automation and globalization, or advocating for fair employee compensation, Business Ethics for Executives connects the world of modern business with that of faith.

    I wish everybody could read this book (and I am doing my part by giving it and referring it to friends, family, and colleagues). The world will be a much better place if this is widely read. Although it uses Judeo-Christian teachings as the reference point for appropriate behavior and practices, the authors' message and examples would resonate beyond those familiar with the Bible. It will also appeal even to those not working in the private sector; it is relevant to pretty much everyone. Even on I wish everybody could read this book (and I am doing my part by giving it and referring it to friends, family, and colleagues). The world will be a much better place if this is widely read. Although it uses Judeo-Christian teachings as the reference point for appropriate behavior and practices, the authors' message and examples would resonate beyond those familiar with the Bible. It will also appeal even to those not working in the private sector; it is relevant to pretty much everyone. Even on first glance, flipping around the pages, the reader will be immediately drawn in by the many well-chosen and well-documented examples and by the clear argumentation. One of the things that impressed me most about the book was how it expertly addresses the real-world pressures in today's business world (it is not at all naive), and how it challenges the reader in a compelling way. Unlike happy-clappy talk suggesting that by doing good, you will do well (financially), this book says: perhaps in some instances, but that isn't the point. The point is that you should do good in order to do good. If you aren't making any sacrifice to do the right thing, are you really doing the right thing? In describing the business world of today, Peet van Biljon evidently draws from his own impressions very much at the center of that world with the most elite of global consulting firms. He also draws from highly credible business sources and scholarship and provides references. The book is hard-hitting and very readable. I can honestly say (and I had better be honest about a book with this title!) that I had a hard time putting it down.
