Reviews

'The strength of Finding Meaning in Business lies in its ability to renew the topicality of this ancient conflict between business and Christian faith in times of the world financial crisis, which has been caused by widespread fraud, control fraud, and systematic corruption.' Sebastian Berger, Dickinson College
