A Voice to be Heard
Written by Richard Higginson, Chair of Faith in Business at Ridley Hall, and Kina Robertshaw, former Ridley student and now a curate in Hereford diocese, the book is based on Kina’s extensive and up-to-date research with 50 leading Christian entrepreneurs from a variety of business sectors.
The book explains the history and explores the motivation of Christian entrepreneurs.
It shows the contribution they are making through producing high quality goods and services, promoting Christian values, witnessing to people in business, and giving generously to worthy causes.
It celebrates the work of Christian entrepreneurs but also challenges them, urging them to widen their vision and grasp their role in God’s overall mission, and calls on church leaders to recognise, affirm and encourage entrepreneurs in their midst.
The book was initially launched at the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity in September 2017. Four further launches have taken place, in Cambridge (October 2017), Manchester (November 2017), Hereford (February 2018) and Birmingham (March 2018). All were well-attended, joyful and overwhelmingly positive occasions, with many copies of the book sold!
The book is available from the following websites:
Faith, Hope and the Global Economy
Faith, Hope and the Global Economy was published by IVP in 2012. In it Richard Higginson argues that, rightly understood and applied, Christian faith can be an enormous power for good – when it stimulates enteprise, reduces poverty, promotes integrity, ensures sustainability and is in the business of making disciples. He shows how every episode in the biblical story of salvation has something important, challenging and hopeful to say about business practice.
The Chair of Faith in Business, Richard Higginson, is the author of several books and booklets in the area including:
Called to Account (Eagle, 1993)
Transforming Leadership (SPCK, 1996)
