free download The Search for God and Guinness Stephen Mansfield ´ 9 summary review The Search for God and Guinness ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub The history of Guinness one of the world s most famous brands reveals the noble heights and generosity of a great family and an innovative businessIt began in Ireland in the mid 1700s The water in Ireland indeed throughout Europe was famously undrinkable and the gin and whiskey that took its place devastated civil society It was a disease ridden starvation plagued alcoholic age and Christians like Arthur Guinness as well as monks and even evangelical churches brewed beer that provided a healthier alternative to. Thanks to Thomas Nelson for the review copy This book is as its subtitle proclaims a biography of a beer But it is obviously than that In short it is the biography of a family and a company whose history is seasoned with devotion to Jesus Christ and to the conviction that faith can be lived out beyond the walls of a church In this interesting and readable journey through 250 years of history Mansfield writes an engaging chronicle of how this family s faith shaped the ethos of a company and led it to be a leader both in the uality of the product it produced and in the way it formed a corporate culture I can t say I d ever thought of beer as a particularly healthy drink probably due to a lot of baggage that often comes with the beverage in its American context but its value as a safe and wholesome alternative to either unsafe water or to harder liuor in the early years of the company was part of the motivation behind its beginningsI was fascinated by the way this company continually chose to be a leader in the way it treated its workers from the way company doctors aggressively sought to improve the living conditions of turn of the twentieth century workers to the preservation of jobs for people in military service during the second world war to the high wages it paid I was also intrigued by the pattern of heirs apparent sidestepping their path to the company for full time Christian ministryIn all this was both an entertaining and informative study on how one family and company have lived out their faith It certainly gives food for thought on how our corporate culture today often falls short and it also proves a great extended illustration of Luther s emphasis that vocation goes far beyond ordained ministry
