BAM Global MovementBusiness as Mission (BAM) is a growing global movement. Christians active in the arena of business, charity and church are on a journey to integrate business and holistic mission. But what exactly is BAM? In the book, Gea Gort and Mats Tunehag explain the BAM concept through theory and theology, with stories to show what it looks like in real life. The authors explain that Business as Mission is an expression of a much broader movement. Ideas regarding mission, church, and charity are shifting, and growing number of christians are aiming for a missional way of living out the whole incarnated gospel in their daily lives where they work and live.
The inspiring stories of thirty practitioners active on all continents provide insight into how gospel can be shared in innovative and practical ways in challenging settings: in developing nations, secularized Western cities, or even closed countries. This book will not only capture your mind and heart as you learn about Business as Mission in theory and praxis, but it will also give you a broad overview of this remarkable movement. This book provides insight into this global movement and is of interest for a broad range of people: pioneers, early adapters and leaders within church, mission, and business, but also for Bible schools and universities.
