A Primer on Innovation Theology
Responding to Change in the Company of God
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"The core idea of this remarkable book is timely, inspiring, and potentially revolutionary, especially as regards selflessness vs. self-interest. Lanny Vincent shows how theology and innovation are not at odds, but deeply complementary. Clear, elegantly written, and practical, the book offers specific direction to those who hope to keep their work wise, humane, useful, and will surely enrich readers' understanding of their own purposes."
--Marilyn McEntyre, PhD, author of Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies
"When scientists and engineers attempt to create new value for others, Vincent argues, they should seek the will of God to guide where they should innovate, why, and for whom. Instead of the invisible hand of the market, the guidance will be from the hands of the Other--holding a plumb line like the prophet Amos saw."
--Jack Swearengen, Professor of Engineering (retired); author of Beyond Paradise: Technology and the Kingdom of God
"There is a gaping hole in our world's innovation thinking. True and lasting innovation requires more than markets, science, technology, and logic; it yearns for a plumb line only the Word can provide. Accept the challenge. See how theology enables innovation anew and begin innovating in the Company of God."
--Greg Gudorf, MBA, Chief Executive Officer, Pure Flix Digital; Inventor; Technology Industry Executive
"Flowing from a life that combines 'deep' theology and spiritual solidarity with a keen eye for what constitutes expert entrepreneurship certainly makes this book a fresh and original contribution."
