This book tackles the difficult, but essential topic of integrity in its relationship to faith, intellectual pursuit and society at large. Being a pastor and an economist himself, the writer shows a way forward to deal with corruption, a disease that is eating away at the very fabric of our societies on different levels, while framing integrity as a virtue that goes beyond mere legal compliance. This book is a must read for professionals in different fields, both believers and nonbelievers. Different readers will be challenged in different ways.
