Just DecisionsJust Decisions: Christian ethics go to work
Co-authored with Alistair Mackenzie
Do the worlds of commerce and faith mix? Or are Christians aliens in the Monday-to-Friday world?

Our daily jobs are full of decisions. Some small, some large. Whether we’re employers or employees or self-employed; whether we work at office or workshop, on hospital floor or factory floor, in a truck or a dairy or a market garden … we are all faced with problems. Sometimes, very tricky problems.

This third book in the “Faith and Work Series” explores how we might go about making decisions in our places of work – decisions that both honour God and take seriously commercial realities. Decisions that are good, right and appropriate. Just Decisions.
