The purpose of business

The reality of the pandemic has exposed the terrible myths and idolatrous dysfunction of our business world. Rather than return to business as usual, how might a more Christian ‘new normal’ look as a post-Covid reset of the business world? 

The Jubilee Centre has established a taskforce to look at the purpose of business from a biblical perspective. Below you can find some of the papers and articles already published by the taskforce.
