Management and the Gospel: Luke's Radical Message for the First and Twenty-First Centuries
The goals of Management and the Gospel: Luke's Radical Message for the First and Twenty-First Centuries may appear to be simple: it describes what management theory and practise looked like in the first century, uses this as a lens to examine what the Gospel of Luke says about management, and draws out implications for today.
However, the book is quite profound in finding that management is a dominant theme in the Gospel, that its message is consistently counter-cultural, and that Luke contains a four-phase 'how to' process model to help readers implement change. Readers will acquire new ways to understand the Gospel as well as the moral foundations of modern management.
"This well-documented work is a worthy addition to Lukan studies, and not least to management alternatives in the twenty-first century. Every member of an organization (oikos), from a small family unit to a large corporation, should read this book." - Dr. V. George Shillington, author of An Introduction to the Study of Luke-Acts, Professor Emeritus, Canadian Mennonite University
"This book is a most welcome addition to growing scholarship on the theology and spirituality of management. Its ability to take account both the first and the twenty-first centuries on their own terms makes it an especially valuable contribution. In spite of the rigour and depth with which Dyck covers such a diverse range of scholarly material--from New Testament theology, to leadership theories, to the philosophy of management--the writing throughout is accessible, clearly argued and highly engaging." - Dr. Sarah Drakopoulou-Dodd, Academic Director, AHEAD-ALBA Hub for Enterprise Development, Greece
