Business by the Book by Larry Burkett
Tomas Nelson Publishers ISBN 0-8407-3319-4 What would happen if you made your business decisions by The Book? The practical, down-to-earth answers to these questions are all in the Bible, says well-known business consultant and owner Larry Burkett. In Business by the Book, he shows how he and his clients have applied biblical principles to these types of business decisions: – Delay paying suppliers? Not when they took the advice of Proverbs 3:27: Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due…
- Pay employees unfairly? Of course not, because they believed James 5:4: Behold the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields cries out against you.
- Fire employees? Of course. If they were slothful (Proverbs 22:29). Or dishonest (Proverbs 14:2)
Larry Burkett has seen biblical principles, such as these, work in businesses of all sizes. And now you can incorporate Burkett\’s valuable advice into your business world with this expanded edition containing some of the actual study material used in Burkett\’s worldwide seminars.
