Focusing primarily on the what rather than the how of managing Christian organizations, Ray Anderson clearly presents a biblical and theological basis for understanding the unique characteristics of Christian organizations and what it means to manage such organizations in a Christian way.

Anderson emphasizes the role of leadership for pastors and those who manage Christian organizations, providing helpful teaching on issues such as strategic planning, the development of mission statements as a definition of the organizations goals, and what it means to use biblical principles, prayer, and dependence on the Holy Spirit in carrying out the organizations goals. Endorsements: There is an increasing interest in--and concern for--how Christian organizations (and churches) are managed in todays 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 Gods Business. --TED W. ENGSTROM President, World Vision 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 Gods 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 Gods Business. Youll get the whole picture. --Todd Hunter, 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--Gods good, pleasing and perfect will. Ray ties it all together in a theological context that will help us get it right. --CRAIG W.
