The Monday Connection William Diehl (HarperSanFransico) A useful and real-world study of the challenges and demands of being faithful in the work-world of corporations. Great examples of the authors efforts to "bridge the gap" between Sunday and Monday.

The Fabric of This World: Inquiries into Calling, Career Choice and the Design of Human Work Lee Hardy (Eerdmans) A more general book than just about working in the business world, this study on the notion of calling is most often explored in the corporate setting. A very useful section studies various schools of thought about management from a solid Christian worldview.

Business as a Calling: Work and the Examine Life Michael Novak (Free Press) Although not an entry-level book, this serious reflection has gathered very serious reviews. A conservative Catholic economist and philosopher, this affirms capitalism, illuminates key ethical issues and re-moralizes business.
