Can I be a good and godly man at work? Of course! Especially if I seek the face of the CEO of the universe, invite him into my daily affairs and remain conscious of kingdom work while I’m walking and talking in the marketplace.
SPRINGDALE, Ohio (PRWEB) April 20, 2017
Rodney Dale Swope considers himself as a believer in business. He often says that he is a marketplace minister disguised as an economic developer and business coach. He goes to the office like every other Christ follower working in a secular job. Yet, many years ago, he decided to see his job as a tour of duty serving the Kingdom of God. His love for and complete reliance on the Word of God and his calling to serve God’s kingdom in the marketplace inspired him in writing “Bibles and Briefcases: A Biblical Economic Guide for the Believer in Business” (published by Xlibris).
This book is for Christ followers, who desire to understand and apply biblical economics principles where they live, work, learn and trade. It blends biblical study, economic instruction and Christian encouragement to serve God more fiercely in the marketplace.
“Can I be a good and godly man at work? Of course! Especially if I seek the face of the CEO of the universe, invite him into my daily affairs and remain conscious of kingdom work while I’m walking and talking in the marketplace,” Swope says. “I am persuaded that some of us are called to serve as ministers in the workplace and marketplace.”
“Bibles and Briefcases” integrates the seemingly complex topics of economics and biblical study into practical theory and application. Through this book, Swope reminds readers that the Word of God is the source of all life's questions and especially how to live, work and serve.
