Are you a marketplace Christian?
Have you longed to do more for God in “real” ministry? Do you wonder how to fulfill your spiritual calling and lay up heavenly rewards, even though little of your time is devoted to church activities?
In this paradigm-shattering book, businessman and Entrepreneur of the Year Robert Fraser writes to the 97 percent of Christians not called to full-time vocational ministry but called by God to the marketplace. In practical everyday language, Fraser shares insights from his experience running a 250-employee software company which experienced sustained revival and business success during his tenure as CEO.
In Marketplace Christianity, Fraser lays out a plan for:
- Redeeming the Marketplace
- Building Anointed Businesses
- Creating Spiritual Oases in the Workplace
- Reclaiming our Inheritance in the Marketplace
- The Ten Kingdom Things Business Does
Marketplace Christianity is full of second-to-none teaching for anyone whose calling and ministry are in the marketplace.
Acclaim for “Marketplace Christianity”
“Bob has unlocked the kingdom understanding of Christians in the Market place through his book. His testimonies and his own journey have encouraged my heart. It’s refreshing and rare to find a great word of encouragement to the everyday business leader, while holding to a very biblical uncompromising love for Jesus. He combines encouragement, exhortation and comfort in his book. Word of warning: You will probably want to buy allot more and hand them out to your friends. My friend and I ended up passing out over 100 copies of “Marketplace Christianity” books to many of my business associates and friends at church. It’s a very timely word for many in the market place today!“ - Steve (review from Amazon.com)
“Bob Fraser has written a #1 must-read for all Church and business leaders. Chapter 7 hit the mark for Better Business by Design. This humble servant leader not only gives us permission but shows us the way in working for the Lord. Your purpose will greatly be impacted and defined when you read this book.” – M. Mullens (USA)
“Like many others, I had heard and read much on Christians in business and the marketplace but it never seemed to be accompanied with any real and practical application. In this book, Bob Fraser has been able to articulate the reality of what God is really doing in every area of the marketplace beyond a conceptual viewpoint. He has tasted it, breathed it and lived it. I found it of great encouragement to push into God and pursue what He has placed within me. Great to find a like-minded one. If you are serious about God and your/His business, you better grab hold of this book.” – W. Douglas (New Zealand)
