Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

More About the Author

Mike Baer has over 25 years experience in organizational and leadership development and is the author of 'Business as Mission - The Power of Business in the Kingdom of God'. He is the founder of several businesses including a strategic consulting and business advisory firm, a construction company, and a bed and breakfast inn. Mike also serves as Executive Director of an international mission organization specializing in microenterprise and in this role he has launched a small business incubation process which is in use in over seventeen countries. As well as his rich experience of the business as mission (BAM) movement, Mike brings an understanding of the biblical basis for business that rejects the compartmentalizing of 'sacred / secular' thinking and presents an exciting perspective on the role of business in the Kingdom of God. Mike is also the Founder and CEO of a business professional training organization that trains and equips the next generation of business as mission (BAM) leaders called Third Path Initiative. Third Path Initiative is a non-residential, collaborative equipping process designed to accelerate the understanding and impact of the next generation of BAM leaders and practitioners worldwide. By building a network of universities, mission agencies, business leaders, business as mission thought leaders and practitioners, the goal is to lead participants through academic, experiential, practical and relational exposure to real Business as Mission and to launch them into BAM careers at home or abroad, as employees or as entrepreneurs. Historically, the Christian system, has only offered two paths--ministry or business. This effort is to offer young people a third path: integration of faith and work, business as mission. Hence the name.

This is a great starter book on BAM (business as mission). It helps give you a solid biblical foundation for business and BAM specifically, while also giving you ideas for next actions to take. I would highly encourage you to read this short book on BAM to see what God is doing through business being done for His glory all around the world. It truly is a movement of God.

If you would like to learn about BAM in a more in-depth and practical way, you can checkout Mike Baer's organization called Third Path Initiative. "Third Path equips young professionals to have a Kingdom impact through profitable business in the global marketplace."

Absolutely wonderful book, and a blessing to anyone who is looking to be a witness for Christ Jesus without joining the clergy in the local church.
