"Mike Baer explodes the myth that ministry is sacred and business is secular. His own pilgrimage from pastor to businessman to international empowerer of the church is a great example of what can happen when we realize that business and ministry can and should be the same thing." --Durwood Snead, Director of World Missions, North Point Community Church, Atlanta
"Business as Mission
is well outlined, concisely written, and easy to read. Mike Baer's dual background as pastor and businessman is well suited to writing this volume that is biblically sound, missiologically strategic, and accurate in elucidating the characteristics of kingdom business. I highly recommend this book." --Tetsunao Yamamori, International Director, Lausanne Committee on World Evangelism
"While many Christians have gone into business with a sense that they should minimize their commitment to their career so they can devote their energies to ministry, or a sense of despair that they weren't able to go into the ministry, this book holds the antidote to those mistaken views." --John H. Warton Jr., President, Business Professional Network
