    One thought on “Entrepreneurship for Human Flourishing

    1. Isaac Ezell

      Wow. This book is a must read for the business owner and the philanthropist. Horst and Greer go deep and engage emotion in this small volume outlining the macro-economic progress that entrepreneurship has brought about in the last 100 years. This book is for those of us that are tempted to think that our work in the business world is somehow less honorable or meaningful than Peace Corps volunteers or non-profit CEOs.

      Peter Greer challenges the distinction between "for profit" and "non-profit" companies in helping people around the world. He share stories of individuals who used their "for profit" companies to provide jobs, expand education, and bring life to communities. I have now heard Peter Greer speak several times and I'm so glad this book came out. It is a powerful message and one I hope people, especially within the church, will take to heart. "Non-profit" does not equal super holy compared to "for pr [...]

      I read this for my family's non-profit, Affecting Change International, and was surprised I actually enjoyed it. From a Christian business perspective, this little booklet essentially argues the point that we are not only to give aid to those in impoverished nations, but we are to teach them good business skills because then they and their communities are better able to help themselves in the future. It also talks about how people are created to work and when we are given the opportunity to work [...]
