    This book is co-authored by David L. Steward and he is a true success story! He has risen from humble beginnings, and confronted many personal setbacks to become founder and CEO of the largest African-American owned company in the United States. Doing Business by the Good Book is his personal story of the faith and perseverance that he credits for his success. Steward shares 52 principles from the Bible that he believes were intended to be implemented in business strategy and conduct. This is not simply a book that blandly presents 52 Biblical principles. It is David Steward's own story of how these 52 principles impacted his personal and family life to eventually build World Wide Technology, Inc., a privately held billion-dollar company. Doing Business by the Good Book is almost like reading a private diary. Steward discusses his own vivid experiences to teach about business management, ethics, strategy and personal leadership. At the heart of his value system are the Biblical scriptures frequently mentioned throughout the book. A central theme is his belief that giving and serving others is an essential ingredient to becoming highly successful. If an organization honestly serves its employees and customers, their response of loyalty will help achieve an impressive bottom line.

    This book is organized into 52 short and readable chapters that can be read in one sitting, or digested as one chapter per week for an entire year. The chapters cover virtually every aspect of modern business and decision-making including integrity, delegation, adapting to change, teamwork, risk-taking, confrontation, mentoring, empowerment, accountability and many more. The foreword is written by former president of the United States, George H.W. Bush. Steward gives much credit and praise for his achievements to his supportive wife Thelma.

    Doing Business by the Good Book is an outstanding publication to read whether you are religious or not. Steward doesn't preach or lecture. He simply and gently teaches from the perspective of his personal example and experience like a seasoned old professor who has "done it all". At weLEAD, we rarely call a book inspirational, but this book certainly fulfills that definition. This is a needed and timely book, especially when you look at the evening news and see many business executives being prosecuted for serious crimes and unadulterated greed.

    In Doing Business By The Good Book: 52 Lessons On Success Straight From The Bible, Dave Steward (Founder and CEO of World Wide Technology, a privately held, billion-dollar company headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri), draws upon his many years of personal experience and professional expertise to show his fellow Christians how they can succeed in building their business enterprise upon the solid foundation of Scripture. With the assistance of author Robert L. Shook, Steward has organized his presentation into specific chapters deftly addressing such issues as the entrepreneurial spirit and integrity, the concepts of delegation and adaption, finding a niche, providing good leadership in the service of others, building long-term relationships, taking a stand, the necessity for consistency, teamwork, risk-taking, operating a customer-driven company, handling confrontation, accountability, the role of praise and recognition, letting go and allowing God to work His will, and so much more. Doing Business By The Good Book should be considered "must reading" by all dedicated Christians in positions of managerial responsibility whether it be a local enterprise or an international conglomerate.
