Business as mission (BAM) is a mission strategy whose time has come. As global economics become increasingly interconnected, Christian business people and entrepreneurs have unanticipated opportunities to build kingdom-strategic business ventures. But Christian companies and business leaders do not automatically accomplish missional purposes. BAM requires mastery of both the world of business and the world of missions, merging and contextualizing both into something significantly different than either alone. C. Neal Johnson offers the first comprehensive guide to business as mission for practitioners. He provides conceptual foundations for understanding BAM's unique place in global mission and prerequisites for engaging in it. Then he offers practical resources for how to do BAM, including strategic planning and step-by-step operational implementation. Drawing on a wide variety of BAM models, Johnson works through details of both mission and business realities, with an eye to such issues as management, sustainability and accountability. Business as mission is a movement with enormous potential. This book breaks new ground in how faith and work intersect and are lived out in crosscultural contexts, where job creation and community transformation go hand in hand. Come, participate in what may well be one of the most strategic mission paradigms of the 21st century.

As a former career international worker now transitioning over to tent-making and prayerfully considering BAM opportunities, I found this book to be helpful as I forced myself to stick with it, but a painfully plodding read overall.

The length of the book could easily have been cut to half to 2/3 of its length. In the early part of the book, the author needlessly repeats himself without adding much to the reader's overall understanding of Business-As-Mission or missiology. And he gets a little too bogged down for my taste later on in the details.

My favorite parts of the book came in the closing chapters when the author shares more from personal experience. More case studies or other practical examples would have been helpful.

In closing, in spite of my lukewarm review, I should also say that, using my Kindle Touch, I made copious highlights of various remarks scattered throughout the book which will provide food for thought and reflection in the future. So this "Comprehensive Guide" does have its strengths. Nevertheless, I would encourage the reader to look for another book as a possible better introduction, particularly if one is not coming from a business background.

To start, I haven't found any BAM books that are worth 5 stars, though I think many are worth reading, but maybe that's just me. I come from a business background with an MBA and am interested in going into BAM in the future.

What is unique about this book, and also what I found the most insightful and helpful, was the section on the Four Camps. As someone in business looking into BAM, I've been pretty confused by many differing voices and opinions. Is an accountability group with coworkers considered BAM, or does BAM have to do with those who are creating micro-enterprises overseas among the poor? If you're like me, talking to more people does not always help answer this question, because everyone is petitioning for the importance of their BAM work as THE work of BAM. This book does help, overviewing all the various "camps" that are out there. Understanding this has really helped me identify where I fit, and how to support others who play in different spaces.

Sometimes, you don't need a groundbreaking idea, you just need someone to help you see the big picture. I think this book give you that, and I'd highly recommend it for those who are interested in exploring BAM and finally making sense of the growing whirlwind of media surround this important topic these days.

Bad organization of some good ideas. Overall, very redundant. He could have achieved the same result with half the size of this massive 500+ page book. The author repeatedly writes, "this is not the place to discuss this issue..." Why mention it if you are not going to discuss it at all? Overall, has some solid ideas and definitions of various terms used in BAM. So for this positive aspect, I add one more star and give two stars.

If you were goint to start a business that you wanted to be a BAM business (and had the capital) this would be an acceptable book. However, there are going to be few of these business started for a variety of reasons. There is an area not really addressed by this book of how to identify, promote, and captialize businesses that are identified on the mission field as having the potential to both significantly improve the living conditions of the people group in which the business arises and assist the missionaries in making disciples of all nations. I think identifying and supporting these businesses is a far more important way to encourage business as mission than the author's approach.

There's a reason this book is used by so many who want to understand the nuances and methods of BAM. It's the most comprehensive and thorough work on the subject that I have found.
