About-

How can one be a Christian in the world of business, not just on the weekend? How can one be honorable in business? Through the integration of the Christian worldview and business ethics, this book provides Christians with a mental framework with which to answer these important questions.

Beginning with Genesis as the foundation for the Christian’s worldview and the Ten Commandments as the outline for the Christian’s ethical obligations, the authors develop principles upon which ethical choices can be made, even when working in a primarily non-Christian-oriented business environment. The book is designed to be helpful both to those beginning their career in business and those already employed in business who struggle with how to engage in today’s business environment while maintaining their commitment to God’s vision for life to be both meaningful and honorable.

Topics of business ethics such as employee rights, discrimination, technology and privacy, insider trading and accounting fraud, and the special challenges of working internationally are covered. The added value this book brings to these discussions lies in its serious consideration of the Christian worldview as foundational to ethical decision-making in everyday areas of business.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Ethics is best learned through quotes and stories, followed by thoughtful discussion and analysis. Here is a book that used this pattern to teach us powerful lessons and insights. It is about time that someone brought God, faith, and the Ten Commandments into the discussion of business ethics. Instructive and inspirational.”

—Marianne M. Jennings, Arizona State University



Honorable in Business provides a welcome addition to the current offerings of textbooks addressing ethical issues in the workplace. Gibson and Augsburger introduce the idea of a Christian worldview and then proceed to demonstrate how such a worldview does not replace or compete with the major ethical theories but rather complements and enhances theories such as utilitarianism and deontology . . . For anyone wondering what difference it makes being a Christian in today’s business environment, this book provides thoughtful, engaging answers.”

—Richard Kyte, Viterbo University



“This book deals with the topic of business ethics from a biblical point of view. It argues that the needs of employees and customers should be given no less emphasis than profit . . . I recommend this book to people actively engaged in business, to theoreticians able to shape the thought of those in business, and to all who are working toward an economically healthy and just society.”

—Lisa Beardsley-Hardy, General Conference SDA World Headquarters
