God is at Work by Ken Eldred: Still Defining a Movement

Every significant movement can point to a book, paper, article or series of all of the above that communicates in one clear voice the vision of a movement.

3 years after we first published this post, God is at Work by Ken Eldred continues to defines and gives examples for the movement of Business as Mission with clear cut precision. Sharing from personal experience with two companies and acclaimed success Ken forecasts a movement of the Church and the Christian community to Business as Mission with speed similar to that of the response to the California gold rush.

Taking what appears to be some content from a previous book that he c0-authored called On Kingdom Business: Transforming Missions Through Entrepreneurial Strategies the book establishes maybe one of the most widely recognized baseline definitions for business as mission.

The last chapters of the book clearly outline the key forms of business as mission and the role that each play. Everything from micro enterprise development to overseas privately owned companies. One of the things that is most insightful about the book are the specific case studies of people that are living out the concepts in countries around the world. It is refreshing to see a book that it so intent on highlighting specific next steps rather than living in a world of theory.

Of all the books that are exist on business as mission this has been the one brought up most frequently at events or meetings with business and mission agency leadership teams. It is also the book that I received the most email replies about when nominating business as mission catalysts to watch back in 2007.

It's a great read, and I encourage you to visit the website to take a look. You can purchase a copy of the book and read exerts by clicking on this link: http://www.godisatwork.org/.
