Wisdom-Based Business Video Lectures
Good business and good behavior go hand-in-hand. In Wisdom-Based Business, marketing and supply-chain professor Hannah J. Stolze draws principles from the Bible’s wisdom literature to create a framework for business that is oriented toward excellence and sustainability. It helps readers make the right decisions in business by presenting:
- Biblical Principles. Drawing upon the Bible’s wisdom literature, each topic addressed is undergirded by insights from Scripture.
- Evidence-Based Research. Recommendations are thoroughly grounded in the best and latest research in the field.
- Case Studies. Each chapter demonstrates how the principles can be lived out in the real world, amid the inevitable challenges and competition all business confronts.
Christians working in the marketplace or training to do so will benefit from Wisdom-Based Business’ practical guidance on how to reflect Christian values in their corporate tasks and strategies. Far from being hindrances, those values can become keys to success.
