Rusty Leonard takes a hard look at the practical and philosophical obstacles all advisors face as they sincerely seek to meld their faith and their practice together. Rusty discusses the issues he faced in his own journey from a top secular money manager to one who has committed to integrate his work and faith in a manner that honors the Lord. He also addresses the most common and toughest objections he faces to the Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) approach used at Stewardship Partners.
