People of the church and people in the business world often have a difficult time relating to one another. Furthermore, a businessperson who is also a Christian may often encounter roadblocks to walking out his or her faith in the marketplace, often coming from those in his or her very own church!
Dr. Peter Wagner explores the history of this disparity and the possible solutions to closing the gap between the traditional church values and the business culture. He discusses the need for mentorship from those who do understand “the rules” in both cultures and can help bring them together.
“The leaders of the nuclear church understand only one rulebook…furthermore, many of them think that the rulebook of the extended church is wrong.” –Peter Wagner
