Catecismo para Empresários e Investidores.

Foi lançado recentemente o livro "A Catechism for Business", para que os empresários não deixem sua fé fora da empresa. O excelente jornal National Catholic Register fez uma análise do livro e entrevistou o editor Andrew Abela. Vou colocar aqui parte do texto do jornal.

Hidden Treasure for Catholic Business

What if we had a resource to use in business, drawn from relevant Catholic social teaching, to help us navigate the difficult moral and ethical challenges we face each day in the workplace? Look no further than the excellent A Catechism for Business, written by Andrew Abela and Joseph Capizzi.

Many leaders who describe themselves as having faith of some kind are often willing to leave their faith at the door of their workplaces. Often, this stems from a misconception about what "faith at work" really is — or it could stem from a lack of knowledge of how to actually apply our faith at work.

The Catholic Church has a wonderful (yet often-difficult-to-find) trove of information and teaching to share in the areas of business and economics to help busy executives navigate difficult moral questions.

A Catechism for Business brings to light and explains what the Church has to offer.

A Catechism for Business presents the teachings of the Catholic Church as they relate to more than 100 specific and challenging moral questions that have been asked by business leaders. The authors have assembled the relevant quotations from recent Catholic social teaching as responses to these questions. Questions and answers are grouped under major topics such as marketing, investment and finance.

Where the Church has offered definitive answers, A Catechism for Business provides them. When the Church has not, the book presents guidelines for reflection and insights into what we should consider doing in given situations.

The book’s easy-to-use approach invites quick reference for tough questions and serves as a basis for reflection and deeper study in the rich tradition of Catholic social doctrine.

If you are a Catholic leader looking to navigate the swamp of modern-day business, pick up a copy of A Catechism for Business and take possibly your first steps towards a more integrated Catholic life, as my conversation with Abela illustrates:
