Climbing the corporate ladder takes you to a place you never imagined.
Business degree in hand, Logan enters the immense Universal Systems building and is hired as an organizational analyst—a trouble-shooter. His job: evaluate the company's five divisions, each on a separate level and each operating on startlingly unique principles. Which set of principles is successful? Why is most of the company's profit generated by one tiny division? What is real profit, anyway? And who is the enigmatic executive that Logan ends up reporting to?
Logan engages in a life-changing pursuit for The Next Level—a fascinating parable that will help you answer some of life's most perplexing and vital questions. Joining Logan in evaluating each level's approach, you'll be inspired to consider that big picture of your own life from an entirely different perspective—one that holds the key to life's ultimate purpose. No matter where you are now, get ready to embark on your own passionate pursuit of The next Level.
If ever a back cover copy depicted a book's content, this one does. Another amazing modern-day parable from the author of A Day with a Perfect Stranger and Dinner with a Perfect Stranger, The Next Level will challenge you to be on God’s agenda, not yours. Short and an easy read, it’s a book you’ll never forget.
I was amazed and tickled with Gregory's ability to depict the Christian walk in corporatese. On one of the levels, you'll see all the world's religions allegorized in the business world. The Next Level is a must read for all Christians, but be prepared. You won't get through it without thinking, "Ouch."
