Book: Profit for the Lord

Profit for the Lord

Economic Activities in Moravian Missions and the Basel Mission Trading Company

William J. Danker  

Wipf & Stock, 2002

Danker’s informative book is a study of the Moravians and the Basel Mission Trading Company, particularly on the economic structures they created to support their mission work.  The author contends that the Church’s ministry in the world must  include ministry to man’s economic needs and hopes that it will “help free Christians on mission frontiers on all six continents to find the forms that will carry out the tentmaking mission of the Church in the marketplace today.”
