TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND IN BUSINESS!

Anton A. van Niekerk

Abstract


The article investigates the implications of Christian commitment for the practice and ethics of business. Attention is paid to the traditional schism between the spheres of faith and business, and an argument is developed to challenge this schism. Christianity's rightful concern about ethical business is defended in terms of its prophetic (vis-a-vis mystic) identity. The implications of Christian identity for business practice are finally spelt out with reference to the acquisition of a realistic anthropology, the possibility of reinterpreting key concepts in the business world, the responsibility of care for the needy and the potential for facilitating dialogue.
