Management and the Gospel: Luke's Radical Message for the First and Twenty-First Centuries
Dyck, Bruno

New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2013 pp. xvi + 302. $110.00


Description: The goals of Management and the Gospel: Luke's Radical Message for the First and Twenty-First Centuries may appear to be simple: it describes what management theory and practice looked like in the first century, uses this as a lens to examine what the Gospel of Luke says about management, and draws out implications for today. However, the book is quite profound in finding that management is a dominant theme in the Gospel, that its message is consistently counter-cultural, and that Luke contains a four-phase 'how to' process model to help readers to implement change. Readers will acquire a new way to understand the Gospel as well as the moral foundations of modern management.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Luke, Literature
