9780268034610: Managing As If Faith Mattered: Christian Social Principles in the Modern Organization (Catholic Social Tradition)

Managing As If Faith Mattered challenges the often-held double standard of private and public moralities. Authors Helen Alford and Michael Naughton bridge the fault line between work and faith by engaging current management issues with Christian ethics. Recovering a rich social tradition found within Christianity, the authors connect ideas such as the common good, virtue, and social principles, with concrete management issues such as job design, just wages, corporate ownership, marketing communication, and product development. In their hands, economic and social challenges become opportunities for managers to integrate their beliefs with their working environment and make decisions based on the tenets of Catholic social tradition.

Review:

“This inspiring book examines many timely questions related to faith and work through the lens of Christian social tradition. This creative and much needed study will be welcomed warmly by all who are searching for balance in their faith, life, and daily work.” —Religious Studies Review
(Religious Studies Review)

“The book deserves to be read carefully and discussed thoughtfully by everyone directly or indirectly involved in business or in business education. . . . [T]his book paves the way to a restructuring of business education in a manner that facilitates a discussion of the role of ethical values in every academic course of every discipline of study at all centers of higher education.” —American Catholic Studies (American Catholic Studies)

“[I]nteresting reading . . . careful attention to logical development demonstration of evidence, and prescriptions for concrete action.” —Theology Today (Theology Today)

Managing as If Faith Mattered is a godsend. Intelligent and sensible, it never fails to recognize the realistic tensions of business life. This book is a must for all observers and students of modern business practice, but its usefulness goes further than that: it deserves to be read in every corporate strategic planning office in every company. It is an oasis in the spiritual desert of business.” —The Tablet (The Tablet)
