I must say, the cover of this book alone truly intrigued me when my good friend Spence Smith gave me the book its release week. I also know that just having the word “beer” in the same sentence with “God” is sometimes a taboo thing for so many in religious circles. I think those that read this book by Stephen Mansfield might think differently afterwards. Check out the video below to hear in more dept about this amazing book.
I’ll end with this, as the video above will share the forward of this book much more eloquently than I ever could. When I began to read this book, I was coming back from a business trip and was in the terminal waiting on my plane. The first chapter really gets to the overall heart of the book and the founder of Guinness, Arthur Guinness, and his passion for the homeless and honoring God through helping to alleviate major concerns and issues in his community and throughout the world. I must say, from the time I started reading the book and the time I got on the plane, I was asked AT LEAST 6 times about the book. Therefore, I was able to share the gospel message with these six people by sharing the story of Arthur Guinness and the true history of Guinness beer. Not many can say that every day in our society, huh?
This book is amazing and I highly recommend it for the highly religious and…..well those not so much! Be inspired to find the more traditional ways to share God’s word with those around you that may not know him through your own community and sphere of influence, no matter what you do for a living.
Please share with me your “initial thoughts” on this the book title and then your thoughts after watching the video. I am so curious.
