Written by James Pearson, a Grace Theological Seminary graduate who had a successful career in sales and marketing before entering the pastorate, the book identifies six minefields in which many Christian businessmen and businesswomen get caught.
Thoroughly biblical, yet reality-based, the six issues addressed in the 116-page paperback include ethical compromise, materialism, dealing with power, sexual temptation, neglected relationships, and spiritual stagnation.
Several pages of thoughtful discussion questions for each chapter make this an ideal vehicle for small-group study or as a text for Sunday School classes and Adult Bible Fellowships.
Strong endorsements for the book come from both the business and ministry areas. Daryle Doden, president of Ambassador Steel Corporation says, “Pastor Jim draws upon his own experience and the truth of God’s Word to help professionals identify and avoid the spiritual minefields waiting for the uninitiated and the unaware…an excellent read.”
Mark Holbrook, chairman of the Christian Management Association, says, “From the first chapter this book will grab your mind and heart…great reading that exposes insidious workplace threats to our character…this book should be on every Christian manager’s must-read list.”
