Integrity is essential to Judeo-Christian business ethics. But today's business environment is complex. Those in business, and those preparing to enter the business world, need more than a simple admonition to live and act ethically. They need to struggle with the question of how integrity and biblical principles can be applied in the workplace. They need to go "beyond integrity" in their thinking. All too often, books on business ethics from a Judeo-Christian perspective are either very theoretical or simplistic and dogmatic. Beyond Integrity offers a balanced approach to a number of concrete ethical issues. Readings from a wide range of sources present competing perspectives on each issue, and real-life case studies further help the reader grapple with ethical dilemmas. The authors want to help the reader arrive at his or her own conclusions. To this end they provide a decision-making model. They also present, in addition to several views on each topic, a distinctly Christian perspective on each issue under discussion. A glance at the table of contents of Beyond Integrity will quickly show the reader the scope of readings and case studies, as well as the structure of the book.
