Approximately 85 percent of working Christians spend the majority of their waking hours working in a for-profit company. The business world is where the unbelievers are and where the culture primarily is shaped. Yet, many marketplace Christians are unaware that their spiritual gifts have been given by the Holy Spirit to be used for ministry primarily in a business setting.

In The Marketplace Christian, Darren Shearer provides practical and personalized strategies to help you discover and fulfill your specific, transformational ministry to the world of business. As a result of reading this book and completing the "Spiritual Gifts in the Marketplace" assessment (included inside), you will...
  • Discover the unique spiritual gifts God has entrusted to you for ministry in the marketplace, including examples of 23 marketplace Christians who have (and are) using their spiritual gifts in business.
  • Learn actionable strategies for transforming your industry for the glory of God.
  • Find out why the marketplace is a great place to serve God in "full-time ministry."
