The globalization of business has provided Christians opportunities like never before-if our principles and practices are sound. Dr. Mark L. Russell examines the biblical basis for business as mission, including an in-depth analysis of the Apostle Paul's work, and then present fresh, practical insights for business leaders based on his extensive research overseas. He takes a thorough, holistic approach to the many issues involved in business as mission, and aspiring practitioners and veteran entrepreneurs will be encouraged and challenged by Russell's stories, examples, and applications.
