During this conversation, Dr. Osburn discussed the content of his book, Taming the Beast: Can We Bridle the Culture of Corruption? This highly original book combines humor, imaginative narratives, and fresh, newly-mined explorations of biblical teaching, and answers 12 questions that every social activist, anti-corruption campaigner, religious leader, businessman, and bureaucrat needs to know about conquering one of the great menaces of our time: the culture of corruption.
