The Role of Business in Redemption

How does business contribute to the common good? That is a key question for Jeffrey B. Van Duzer, dean of the business school at Seattle Pacific University. Van Duzer likens business profit to your body’s blood: In both cases, if it isn’t coursing, your purpose is irrelevant. But that doesn’t make either blood or profit the reason for existing; it is a means to accomplish a purpose, not the purpose itself. Seen that way, the business school promotes an intriguing alternative view of the role of business in achieving God’s purposes in the world. In an interview conducted by and for Faith & Leadership, an online offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, Van Duzer expands on his sense of the intersection of business, Christian faith and the role of faithful business in redeeming the world.
