Introduction by Henry Kaestner: Many of us have heard the concept of the "creation mandate". We understand that we are created in God's image, that he was a creator and a designer and therefore we are the same. As entrepreneurs we inherently get this at some level, but I think that we are well served by tapping in to this Biblical truth regularly as we look for an encouragement in our work. No one does a better job of this, in my opinion, than Jerry Bowyer.
Jerry is an economist, columnist and a frequent radio guest. More importantly, he's a Christ follower who takes God's word seriously and look to apply that understanding to the marketplace. He's studied the Hebrew in the first several chapters of Genesis for 5 years.....pretty amazing. He has a longer 240 page scholarly work on this that might be interesting to some of you, but I recommend this short piece that he did in summary of his work. May we all be fruitful and multiply.....and understand why.
