Editorial Reviews

Review

“Tim Fort dares to examine the taboo relationship between religion and business, and he does so with care and rigor. After unearthing their inevitable and often ineffable relationship, he suggests that a more explicit connection would strengthen each as a constructive force in society.”—Joshua D. Margolis, Associate Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
(Joshua D. Margolis)

“Tim Fort’s latest book insightfully proposes a new 3 Ps for the twenty-first century. He provides a compelling argument for religion’s increased role in business, drawing on such ethical precepts as meaningful dialogue, trust, international common good and reciprocity.”—Patrick E. Murphy, C. R. Smith Co-Director, Institute for Ethical Business Worldwide, Mendoza College of Business, University of Notre Dame
(Patrick E. Murphy)

". . . A well-crafted introduction to a small but growing area of scholarly research and a worthwhile acquisition for libraries that serve liberal arts programs hoping to integrate social and political philosophy, religion, and business. Recommended."—Choice
(Choice)

"Fort's book makes for interesting reading for those working in interreligious dialogue."—John T. Pawlikowski, Journal of Ecumenical Studies
(John T. Pawlikowski Journal of Ecumenical Studies)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Troubadour on December 22, 2008
Format: Hardcover
A brilliant analysis of the relationship between religion and business. A must read for anyone engrained in corporate culture who is seeking some meaning, guidance, or an ethical approach to business interactions.

This book addresses a number of current events which puts the ethical framework in context. It then proposes some universals in religious principles across denominations in an effort to persuade the reader of the engrained connection between business and religion.

This is a CUTTING EDGE work which is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the spiritual, business person and academic alike.
