Redemption is a concept desperately needed in an increasingly polarized world where people celebrate the fall of their opponents, and the goal too often is to cancel someone rather than see them flourish. Dr. Bucci’s work, therefore, is a breath of fresh air, as it focuses on how to restore people—even if that journey is long and hard. And, as Bucci notes, there is great beauty in a restored life.

Prior to reading Redemption Inc., I thought I understood redemption as; the act of redeeming or atoning for a fault or mistake. Dr. Joseph Bucci takes us much deeper through telling the stories of real people living through a real crisis. Dr. Bucci takes us on a journey showing what biblical redemption looks like in the lives of everyday, normal people who miss the mark. My perspective has been wonderfully enhanced and enriched.

Redemption Inc. is a compelling compilation of extraordinary stories that remind us that the work of redemption and restoration does not end when we leave the church building or our church circles. This work is an insightful prompt that our own experience of the biblical principle of restoration in our personal lives can and should be applied in varied and practical ways in our vocational lives.

Dr. Bucci conveys the message of hope for many who believe that we serve the God of the second chance. The examples he uses strike deeply the redemptive work that Christ has done in each of us who believe in the salvation of that which was lost. Having worked with Joe at Geneva, I personally saw a man who loved the Lord and loved people. He gave many students a second chance while modeling the heart of a Christian to his peers. We are called by Jesus to redeem our world for Him and this book is an excellent reflection of the power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of many.

Through the lives of real people, Dr. Bucci walks us through their pain, brokenness, and the hope of redemption. In reading through each chapter, I could clearly see a mosaic. Each story, each life, represents people we possibly meet every day. Individuals who have made decisions or by no fault of their own; their lives, families, and careers are shattered. Unfortunately, for many, that’s how the story ends. Throughout Redemption, Inc., Dr. Bucci reveals the powerful potential of God’s grace in redeeming broken, shattered lives. Redemption, Inc. will inspire everyone to be intentional in any way they can to help pick up the broken pieces, and although painful, a mosaic of God’s grace, with time, will appear.

This book introduces an important topic that has long been avoided or ignored in organizational life. In an era when many organizations prefer to “play it safe” and avoid risks, a few are finding the practical, philosophical, and spiritual motivation to offer second chances to those who have paid the price to experience freedom, sobriety, or personal redemption. This is their story. This is MY story. I am who I am today because of people like those described in this timely book who believe in healing and restoration. My friend Joe Bucci has done us all a favor in providing a thoroughly-researched, yet practical guidebook for leaders, employers, and board members worldwide. Redemption Inc. is a must-reading for anybody who is committed to building resilient, powerful teams and organizations.

#Love Warrior: Admire Him; Adore Her
To me, Joseph Bucci, educator and pastor, and leader, is just Joe. Joe who loves Jesus. Joe is a consummate professional with a kind and gentle servant’s heart always looking for better ways to help his students and those of us in our businessmen and pastors bible study or in his church do better.
His latest book Redemption Inc is a marvelous study to help all of us do better. It is a treatise and a roadmap for coming back from a wide array of destructive behaviors and life hazards; centered around the one true Way, Jesus Christ. And also about how business can be intimately involved in redemption. Who doesn’t need a way back?
I have my own story of destructive behavior and finding a way back through Jesus, but my friend Johnny’s story is much more interesting and seemingly impossible. Johnny shot his wife in the head when he caught her cheating on him. Fast forward several years of prison, redemption, struggling to survive because of his new faith in prison, and we come to me meeting Johnny when he was in a halfway house working in the warehouse of the company for which I was the new controller.
God used Johnny to be my mentor in the new faith I discovered. Johnny is a black man who shot his wife, and I am wearing 3-piece suits at that time. We were worlds apart on the outside but true brothers on the inside. Johnny exemplified 24/7 Christianity for me. I saw redemption in action daily, in our company, through this ex-convict and his impact on my life and family and many others in our work environment who found the redemptive work of Jesus.
All this was going on while our company was having the highest return on investment in our industry. Johnny went on to marry and become a pastor.
I believe in redemption through business because I have seen it through Johnny and many others over time. I believe in Joe. I believe his book can make a major impact on those who need redemption and those who would like to see this happening in their business life.
