about

Religion is an increasingly significant factor in our society, so understanding religious and faith-based organizations is more important than ever. Until now Malcolm Torry's Managing God's Business has been the only wide-ranging survey of the characteristics of religious and faith-based organizations. Now, in his first of two volumes, Managing Religion: The Management of Religious Organizations offers the first comprehensive discussion of the management of religious and faith-based organizations (in this case of Christian ones). Each chapter offers a discussion of the earliest Christian organizations based on New Testament evidence; a study of modern religious and faith-based organizations and their management based on classic and recent research literature, and where necessary on new theory; and an exploration of aspects of secular management theory that might or might not be appropriate to the management of religious and faith-based organizations. This book is essential reading for anyone involved in the management of organizations in the vast and increasingly important religious sector.
