“Marc Gunther, a senior writer for Fortune magazine and the author of Faith and Fortune: The Quiet Revolution to Reform American Business, is one of the few business writers who have recognized how global corporations can be influenced by progressive politics.”
– Thomas L. Friedman, author, The World is Flat, and New York Times columnist
“I arrived at this book as an avowed, vocal skeptic of the ‘spirituality-in-business”movement.’ I departed as a …convert. Even cynics should devour this marvelous book. Marc makes a compelling case that the right things matter– and pay off; yet he exudes not a dollop of naivete.”
— Tom Peters, author, In Search of Excellence and Re-Imagine!

“Matthew’s Gospel teaches that you cannot serve God and mammon. But you can serve God while earning a little mammon, Fortune writer Marc Gunther argues in this enjoyably enlightening survey of socially responsible businesses…. from its opening sentence (“Despite most of what you’ve read about business lately, corporate America is changing for the better.”) to its case that ethical commerce need not be unprofitable, the book upends preconceived notions.”

“Faith and Fortune offers hope that there is a better way than business as usual. Marc Gunther clearly illustrates that by linking corporate values to personal values, the business leaders profiled in this book have created a new model for addressing the world’s problems in these complicated times. This thought-provoking book should be a “must read.” —Timothy E. Wirth, President, United Nations Foundation and former U.S. Senator
“In his provocative inquiry into the nature of modern American business, Marc Gunther looks into the darkness of corporate greed and scandal and, in the shadows cast by the likes of Enron and WorldCom, sees a beacon of hope in companies in which profits and values coexist.” — David Wessel, Capital columnist for The Wall Street Journal and author of Prosperity: The Coming 20-Year Boom and What It Means To You “With the keen eye of a seasoned business writer and the gentle confidence of a trusted storyteller, Marc Gunther masterfully provides an insider’s view of the faith at work movement – the quiet revolution that is transforming corporate America. After reading Faith and Fortune, you can’t help but wonder, now why can’t I do that in my organization?” — Dr. David W. Miller, Executive Director of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture, and the former president of The Avodah Institute
