After launching his career in the Texas oil fields, John Cortines he decided to advance the biblical message of generosity full-time, joining the leadership team of Generous Giving. He was earning six figures as a petroleum engineer for a major oil company in Louisiana. He was so delighted in the prospect of shoring up wealth for his young family that his online banking password was “retire_at_40!” John was a Saver.
Honestly, both of these authors are way out of my league. My husband and I work for small parochial schools, and certainly will never have the kind of income to either retire at 40 or spend $1,000 a month on eating out (I don't even know how that's possible; we must go to the wrong restaurants). However, I do like the idea of radical generosity. I love being able to share what I do have with those who need it, and I do believe there are benefits to being generous. This book can either confirm what you already believe about being generous, or help you move in that direction.
