Book: Financial Discipleship @Work – Peter Briscoe

This book is a comprehensive guide and teaching about Business Finances from a Christian perspective. I think it should be the new standard and a mandatory read for all those who would like to educate themselves in business finance from a Biblical perspective. It provides a biblical framework and criteria for making financial decisions. It gives you all the knowledge and wisdom you need as a Christian entrepreneur business leader or professional dealing with financial issues.

– Wouter Droppers, president Europartners 

Business disciplines such as accounting, bookkeeping, financial planning, budgeting and forecasting are based on figures, but they represent a collection of decisions which have a major influence on relationships between people within and around our business and on our relationship to God. This book is designed to be a stimulus for reflection on how financial decisions are made in doing business, with a focus on these relationships.

We will look at financial decisions through relational glasses which have two lenses. One lens is focused on God and the other on those around us.

In Part 1 we will look at why finances are a key factor in our discipleship at work, and how we are invited to work in a partnership with the Lord.

In Part 2 we will look at the theological foundations of financial tasks. and the process of the creation. fall and redemption of financial disciplines.

In Part 3 we will look at making financial decisions – God’s way, and discuss ways in which financial decisions influence relationships and what effect they have on the health of the company

In Part 4 we will discuss ways in which we can make disciples at work, passing on to others what we have learned from Jesus.
