The daily business news frequently includes stories of the following: unprecedented economic disasters, off-balance sheet loans, ignoring safety violations, employee lawsuits, toxic spills, bribes, misleading accounting practices, late-day trading, trading on insider information, “round-trip” trades, portfolio pumping, NINJA (no income, no job, no assets) loans, and cozy relationships with regulators and contractors.

It is clearly time for all managers in government, business, nonprofits, and religious organizations to return to the fundamentals of management. This book discusses the foundations of our modern management concepts and offers excellent illustrations and stories to support its viewpoint from the Bible, management literature, and the author’s extensive experience.

Reading this book could help every person, from the highest paid corporate executive to the minimum wage worker, in dealing with people, avoiding legal problems, avoiding unnecessary costs, while building a strong organization, and at the same time, making work more enjoyable.
