These keys to God’s character, he argues, are also the keys to Christian business ethics. Hill then shows how some common responses to business ethics fall short of a fully Christian response. Finally he turns to penetrating case studies on such pressing topics as employer-employee relations, discrimination and affirmative action, and environmental damage. Just Business is an excellent introduction to business ethics for students and a bracing refresher for men and women already in the marketplace..Bibliography: Includes bibliographical references (p.
