A Christian critique of business and economics, I’m a Christian, Even at Work looks at a topic that affects everyone in some way, since we are all providers or recipients of goods and services. In a changing business world, too few books look at the ethical issues through the lens of the gospel. Author Jerry Poppe leads readers to evaluate their employer/employee decisions in light of God’s principles as set forth in Scripture, helping them to examine the relationship among faith, economics, and ethics. Business leaders especially will find benefit in reading this book because it takes a thorough look at all sides of the issues faced by today’s leaders, as well as what they can expect to face in the future. Poppe’s message also holds relevance for average employees; the author helps to sort through the issues that affect employees’ decisions in the context of Christ’s cross, reminding them that Christian workers seek to glorify God in all they do. In the end, Christian workers will gain a better understanding of the challenges that management faces and will be led to better serve their employers as if serving the Lord. Includes endnotes and a bibliography.
