Overview

In Behind the Bottom Line, Stephen R. Graves and Thomas G. Addington — cofounders of the popular journal Life@Work— offer businesspeople a much-needed resource for understanding the spiritual factors that have a profound (and often unheralded) influence on our day-to-day business lives. This personal guide shows how biblical wisdom can become a vital and integral part of our work lives and a pathway to business excellence. In each chapter, the authors examine one of the fifteen central themes of business life— power, change, wealth, ambition, ethics, balance, stewardship, partnering, calling, rest, strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, marketplace grace, and legacy— and explore how spirituality is intrinsic to our professional lives. Throughout the book, Graves and Addington offer powerful, life-changing spiritual insights that can profoundly affect how we approach our life at work.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Steve and Tom have captured the most compelling questions that gnaw at every executive that daily lives the overwhelming contradictions between success in the workplace and a divinely purposed life. In the world of commerce, where we flex the muscles of ambition, power, entrepreneurial creativity, and influence, what assures that fellowship, grace, and a godly legacy result? This book probes the foundations of the world of commerce, and leadership success models in light of a deeper drive to leverage those very factors of success in a more significant and satisfying way."
— Mark (Denny) Weinberg, executive vice president and chief development officer, WellPoint

"Were busy. We're conflicted. Yet this book offers simple insights on how to integrate spiritual principles into our leadership methods and our workplace. No longer do the secular and spiritual worlds have to operate independently."
— David M. Weekley, chairman and CEO, David Weekly Homes

Both hold a doctorate, both are deeply devoted to their families, and both love the never-ending challenge of meshing real life with the message of Jesus.
