Anointed for Business – How to use your influence in the marketplace to change the world Hardcoverby Ed Silvoso Every Business Is God’s Business. The false notion that labor for profit and worship of God is made clear in this book. Today, more than ever, the heart of our cities is the marketplace. Knocking down the perceived wall between commercial pursuit and service to God can build the foundation for an unparalleled marketplace revival. Only then can we extend God’s kingdom to every corner of our world.
In the book, Chris Horst and Peter Greer of HOPE International contend entrepreneurship is as important as the over-glorified ‘non-profit’ in that it fuels the very engine of human flourishing needed to truly minister to those in need.
Whatever their size or form, businesses play a central role in the war on poverty.
With personal stories of everyday businesspeople, Greer and Horst assert the integral role of free enterprise and entrepreneurship in creating opportunities for individuals to experience what it means to be fully human.
