Can the wealthy make a difference in the Kingdom of God and influence the spread of the gospel? Pier believes that money can be used in the temporal realm to impact the eternal. He gives us many examples of wealthy people doing exactly that.

There are thirty one stories and Pier suggests reading one a day. He then suggests praying about how God can use us. There are points to remember at the end of each story as well as a printed prayer.

These are stories about people with great personal wealth.

A Disruptive Generosity was a good read. It wasn’t my favorite book I’ve read in the past year. I’m not even sure it makes the top ten, but it was well written and contained a lot of good stories.
I like the idea and the concept of each day being a short devotional style look into generosity. It was a nice idea to get people thinking about how they can live generously on a daily basis. So, keeping in mind that overall I enjoyed the book, let me tell you what I didn’t like. My biggest complaint

NOT what I was expecting. Too much religion and preachy advice that would benefit anyone who believed in that mythology. I was hoping for some sort of transformative information to share to make a difference. So many quotations pulled from the bible to support the idea of giving and making a change. I think it would work with rich religious people. But how would it help the poor? Definitely not enjoyable. And that is my honest review.

This book was amazing writing and compelling series stories that showing us how modern-day leaders demonstrate the faithfulness of God in their disruptive generosity. God is indeed the Great Choreographer using our modern-day generosity to fulfill his ancient promises. This story was an inspiring road map to experiencing the joy of giving. I highly recommend to everyone must to read this book. “ I received complimentary a copy of this book from Baker Books Bloggers program for this review “.
