"Brinckerhoff has captured the essence of faith-based management in his latest book. He has successfully integrated proven management concepts and ideas with the spiritual mission that distinguishes faith-based organizations. A must-read for volunteers and staff." --Dana R. Todsen, ACFRE President and CEO Baptist Health Foundation, Inc. Birmingham, Alabama "Faith-Based Management is a concise, accurate, and practical book. It will be a very helpful resource for leaders who are trying to unite faith and mission in today's world." --The Reverend Dr. John R. Buzza Hope Presbyterian Church and Community Ministry Center Springfield, Illinois "Faith-Based Management offers the fourth important contribution in Peter Brinckerhoff's management series for not-for-profit executives. If mission, finance, and marketing are important to not-for-profits' success, core values and beliefs are essential to the faith-based not-for-profits' very existence. Peter once again challenges and provokes thoughtful reflection while providing the reader with a pragmatic prescription for improving the overall management of the faith-based organization. He challenges each of us to accept full responsibility for carrying out God's work. He shows us a way." --Reid S. Thebault President and CEO YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit
