If this site does not plan to sell these books, I suggest that you provide links to Amazon which should provide a commission back to defray the web site costs.

Profit for the Lord: Economic Activities in Moravian Missions and the Basel Mission Trading Company (Paperback)by William Danker is an excellent historical study of one of the longest lived and most significant examples of BAM. It is rich with factual details about the actual financial performance, impact, problems and solutions attempted over the decades by these BAM pioneers. These business people crossed cultural barriers through business to reach the unreached. The mistakes they made and the successes they achieved are worth reflecting on by those of us who seek to stand on their shoulders and help finish the task!

Joy at Work is quite good...although he I think he bucks the rhetoric of BAM, he still adheres to the basic principles.

Business as Mission by Neil Johnson is the A to Z guide for BAM start ups. Available from IVPress. Also, Why Business Matters to God by Jeff Van Duzer lays the groundwork for a theology of Business.

Another great book is "Why Business Matters to God" by Jeff Van Duzer. This was the favourite book I read all of 2011.
