Faith in Business Quarterly
Faith in Business Quarterly (FiBQ) is unique - the only publication of its type in the UK. It is a quarterly journal relating Christian faith and values to the business world, providing a forum to explore and promote the application of Christian faith and values to working life in business, the professions, and public and voluntary service. It occupies a strategic position midway between an academic journal and a popular magazine.
FiBQ has been published since 1996. It is the outcome of a partnership between Faith in Business and the Industrial Christian Fellowship (ICF), the longest standing ‘faith and work’ organisation in the UK. The two organisations are equally represented on its editorial board and steering group. Richard Higginson is one of the editors and Peter Heslam is a member of the steering group and regular contributor to the journal.
We welcome offers of thoughtful articles about business written from a Christian perspective for publication in FiBQ. Please use our Contact Us
