Description

The external pressures faced by Christians in the marketplace in Asia are the same as those faced by Christians worldwide. Few of us have sufficient inner spiritual strength and pastoral support to deal with the relentless power of sin as manifested in the corporate world. Increasingly, too, in a globalised economy, there is a need for Christians in the West to understand the ramifications of working in Asia.

This short book is one attempt to respond to the need to help Christians in Asia find a biblical response to the real pressures they face in the marketplace. It takes seriously both the Scriptures and the context in which Asian Christians function. In order to provide a holistic look at the issues involved, Bribery and Corruption begins with a theological framework for grappling with real-time problems, continues with responses from various theologians on the framework presented, and concludes with actual case studies from the marketplace.

“It is certainly a worthy contribution to a very important challenge. It strikes me as both faithful to Scripture and practical/insightful for working Christians in the marketplace.... This careful essay on bribery and corruption makes a lot of sense to me. We need to get away from legalism and formalism and ask “what is the point here?” What are the values we are trying to protect? Corruption of justice and fairness?”
