Description

What does innovation have in common with theology? More than you might think.
Both are ways people attempt to make sense. Both have to do with value and knowledge creation. Both have much to say about change and how we respond to it (or not). And both affect human culture and physical realities with implications for generations to come.
A Primer on Innovation Theology explores the territory where innovating and theology intersect. At this intersection, the Primer pours a theological foundation for innovators who aim to create new value for the common good, realize sustainable more than acquisitive value, and pursue generous and just relationships more than merely transactional ones.
Adapted from the larger, original volume Innovation Theology: A Biblical Inquiry and Exploration, A Primer is intended for lay audiences, especially innovators, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs, and investors who are theologically curious about their own roles and responsibilities.
Change is unrelenting. How we choose to respond can insolate, insulate, or innovate. If we choose to innovate, our aim is to create new value for others. The success and failure of these aims may reveal whether we are innovating where the plumb lines of God may be more important than the bottom lines of our efforts, in other words, in the company of God.
