This book was suggested by a member of my Ministry & Personnel committee, I think when we were talking about the need for the congregation to do some work around stewardship (because that is what the book is about).
The premise is that a rich, make money is what counts, stockbroker reads an article about a CEO who believes strongly in the value of giving. At the same time the Broker is highly successful and yet wonders about significance. So he goes and spends a weekend with the Executive to learn the secret of how giving and generosity brings happiness.
I am really tempted to get folks in the church to read this book and then have us discuss it. It gives a good basis for a discussion of Christian Stewardship.
On the surface it is a novel, but the claim is that it is based on the attitudes and practices of one of the authors....
