Each Fall Philadelphia Biblical University presents a Worldview Conference (this year it is October 30, 2010). It’s an inspiring time of learning and fellowship. This year’s exciting topic is about the intersection between commerce, politics and society from the Biblical standpoint. One of pre- readings was Andrew Carnegie’s “Gospel of Wealth” essay. It is a fascinating topic; I would recommend it to anyone wanting to understand the philosophy of philanthropy. The library also has a display dealing with the topics presented at the conference. Such topics include moral relativism, food, theology, commercial integrity, and situational ethics.
Check out the library catalog (http://library.pbu.edu) for more information on these subjects. The display is only a taste of the many books we have on ethics and business. Think of the worldview conference as the beginning of your expedition into studying these topics for pleasure. The conference is a chance to see, hear and meet people in the business world and academia. I don’t know about you, but I plan to be there to listen and learn.
