About the Book

"The Incarnation, as all Christians will attest, was the most momentous change in world history .... Ever since the Incarnation, immanence and transcendence have been inseparable, which in business is illustrated by what one rogue trader or innocent bank official can do with a computer and the flick of a key to create even the crash of the whole banking institution. In life and in business, we never know what small details can have such a magnitude of consequences." - From the Introduction
