Professor's New Book Offers Biblical Perspective on Organizational Practices

J. Lee Book

 

A new book from J. Lee Whittington, professor of management at the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business at the University of Dallas, offers a look at organizational practices from a biblical perspective.

In “Biblical Perspectives on Leadership and Organizations,” Whittington takes readers through current practices in organizational leadership, weaving in biblical models as examples of best practices.

Drawing from more than 20 years of experience in management consulting and academia, Whittington presents topics including:

  • Paul as the prototype of spiritual leadership
  • Interpreting Paul through multiple lenses of social science research
  • Biblical metaphors for contemporary leaders
  • New Testament images of organization


Whittington’s research has been published in The Leadership Quarterly, Journal of Management, Academy of Management Review and the Journal of Organizational Behavior. His consulting experience includes engagements with Nokia, FedEx-Kinko's, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Siemens.

“Biblical Perspectives on Leadership and Organizations” is available in e-book and hardcover format from Palgrave Macmillan at www.palgrave.com.
