Top Five Books to Read with Businesspeople in Your Congregation

Brian Gray

One of the keys to preparing your people to walk with God in every area of life is understanding their day-t0-day life, especially the hours they spend at work. Don't assume you understand the unique pressures and opportunities they face. Reading a book, or excerpts of a book, together can deepen your understanding and spark meaningful conversation. Your interest and engagement is a powerful sign of respect for the vocational gifts of these talented professionals.

Our top five reads for businesspeople in your congregation are:

Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God's Work by Timothy Keller

Business As A Holy Calling: A Workbook for Christians in Business and Their Pastors by Tim Dearborn

Why Business Matters to God: And What Still Needs to Be Fixed by Jeff Van Duzer

Business for the Common Good: A Christian Vision for the Marketplace by Kenman Wong and Scott Rae

Entrepreneurship for Human Flourishing by Chris Horst and Peter Greer
