Jesus and Risky Business

Seeing the news story below made me think of this book that I used a number of years ago in my “theology of the laity” class. Worth the read for those interested in the intersection of faith and business. Also made me think of Michael Novak’s comment in Business as a Calling:

What was the vocation that from all eternity the Lord God Creator chose for his only Son? The Lord God Creator called the Messiah, the Redeemer, to shoulder the vocation of small business: a creative vocation, a vocation of humble service to nearly every human household. As a carpenter, Jesus found freedom to be creative and to serve others. Creativity, exactitude, quality, beauty, service to others, independence – this was the substance of his daily life. In preparation for all that was to come.

    Unfortunately for me, the video doesn’t work this side of the border. But, I do wish to express appreciation for the books you mention. Have a great day!
