Self-described as a book on “succeeding in business without selling your soul,” this is the very readable account of John Becket, the CEO of RW Becket Co. in Elyria, OH, the largest manufacturer of residential oil burners in the world. He begins by telling his personal story, his search for faith (he was raised in the Episcopal church), realizing that all work is sacred and his was “called to business”, and his eventual commitment to faith in Christ. Telling his story around an ABC/Peter Jenning ...more

Excellent book that can be read very easily in an hour and a half. John Beckett does a very nice job of sharing his testimony. Starting with how recognized God at work in his personal life and then allowing God to work in his career! Amazing stuff well worth reading. I wish I had the book longer to place some of the quotes here. But the one thing that I can remember clearly is his statement about Proverbs being the a great book to reference for advice about life, work and family.

Good road map

There are no guarantees for success in business. But success in life can be achieved by reading the Roadmap of life. Biblical processes are often used without realizing them in business. Honesty, integrity are good examples of good business practice. Beckett describes a biblical centrality to all that he does along with a bold statement of faith in all aspects of life. Committed Christian faith and good business practice prove to be not only compatible but integral to wholeness of l

It was an ok book for me. It was often a little to preachy/generic for me but I love learning about the ways Beckett interwove Christianity in to the workplace.

John Beckett's story of his faith growing as the demands of the business he took over from his father grew.

He explains how he has been led to integrate his Christian faith into the way he does business.

"Life, when it becomes an unforgiving anvil against which lessons are hammered home, can devastate and dishearten; but that same anvil can also forge character and produce hope."

He learned that Biblical insights could be instrumental in shaping his company's policies and practices.

This book is beautifully written. It's a wonderful and useful material not only for business leaders, but for anyone working in a management position, or for people looking for ways to incorporate their faith into their work. Definitely a worthwhile read. I will most likely revisit this book again and again for future references and questions.

The author of this book is a business owner from Ohio. He offers encouraging notes on how to operate a business along biblical principles in this book (and also in the audio book I'm listening to: Mastering Monday). And he has proven that it works. This book has motivated me to want to learn more from godly business leaders. I really enjoyed the personal stories he shared and the honest insight.
