Congratulations to Dr. Everett Roper (Business & Information Systems Dept.), whose manuscript will be included as one of six chapters in a new textbook entitled Scriptural Foundations of Business, to be published by The Andrews University Press.
The objective of the project was to produce a book that will provide Adventist business professors and their students with structured support for integrating Christian faith into the classroom experiences in Adventist business schools. Chapters will cover the core courses within the business curriculum and present the Biblical basis for the courses’ philosophical foundations. The intent is to provide the business student a firm grounding in scripture, as understood within Seventh-day Adventist theology, as an introduction to the course material. Subsequent coverage of the course subjects will then be understood within the context of that scriptural foundation.
This will not be just another book on business ethics, or even Christian business ethics. It is, in fact, an attempt to establish a groundbreaking textbook that exposes the student to what the Bible has to say about the course subject. Several Business Schools throughout the SDA higher education system have already agreed to adopt this book, positioning our schools as providing a distinctly different educational experience than can be obtained from other public or private institutions. This project has the potential for offering some exciting materials for students in Seventh-day Adventist colleges and universities worldwide and is being translated into other languages as well.
