"There is an increasing interest in--and concern for--how 'Christian' organizations (and churches) are managed in today's complex society. Ray Anderson has made a careful study of this Christian organizational problem and helps us all to better understand the biblical stance related to an issue which affects so many of us. Here is timely help, a theological perspective, and practical applications. The author gives us an effective, refreshing, creative approach to 'Minding God's Business.'"

"After several decades of leadership theory and practice without much theology, often leading to ruthless pragmatism on one hand or ineffective mysticism on the other, Ray Anderson has stepped in and done what he does best. He teaches us that Minding God's Business is most effective when it simultaneously pays attention to the Spirit and to the organization--with no nutty, false dualisms. If reading 'how to' books on leadership and management are leaving you wanting more, and if theological works make you say 'What do we do now?' pick up Minding God's Business. You'll get the whole picture."
Founder and President, Society for Kingdom Living, author of Christianity Beyond Belief
"Ray Anderson merges the 'secular' concepts of accountability, competence, and excellence with the 'spiritual' concept of the calling of God to the secular workplace, erasing the lines we often draw between the two. As a leader in both the secular and para-church environments, I have striven to operate with one standard--God's 'good, pleasing and perfect will.' Ray ties it all together in a theological context that will help us 'get it right.'"
