Summary The Search for God and Guinness

Read & Download ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB â Stephen Mansfield Stephen Mansfield â 7 characters Summary The Search for God and Guinness N Mansfield's fabulous new bookThe amazing and true story of how the Guinness family used its wealth and influence to touch millions is an absolute inspiration Eric Metaxas New York Times best selling authorIt's a rare brew that takes faith philanthropy and the frothy head of freshly poured Guinness and combines them into such an inspiriting narrative Cheers to brewmaster Stephen Mansfield And cheers to you the reader You're in for a treat R Emmett Tyrrell Jr Founder and editor in chief of The American Spectator. I read The Search for God and Guinness because of its claim to present an argument towards the compatibility of drinking beer and a Christian life In a pros and cons historical facts and precedence sort of way I wanted to read a book that argued for the compatibility of alcohol in a Christian s daily life I was let down It started off strong in this vein though In fact I should have just stopped reading after the Introduction because Mansfield does a great job of presenting the historical precedence of alcohol in Christian s lives and pointing out how it is only recently 1900s that alcoholbeer was seen as such an abhorrent thing I enjoyed the Introduction and felt for his argumentsHowever once the real book began it veered away from this path It became a strict history of the Guinness family and the Guinness brand I even felt that his early grand claims of how generous Guinness was to its workers was little explored in later chapters However this feeling of little exploration might be explained by the poor writing of the book The same idea or fact was repeated over and over just in different words Each new piece of information was presented as the best thing ever or a person doing the greatest thing ever or a company being the best ever It became a case of crying wolf too many times Mansfield chose to use such superlative language for everything that I became desensitized and lost track of what was actually an impressive achievement and what was just normal and expected accomplishments There were even historic inaccuracies such stating that someone served in the Boer War at the end of the twentieth century when the Boer War was fought from 1899 1902 which would place it at the end of the nineteenth century or beginning of the twentieth century This brings me to my final complaint of the book It read like a high schooler s research paper The research seemed to be mostly from secondary sources He uoted and took from many other biographies and accounts of the Guinness family and Guinness brand There was very little primary material in his book This brings up the harsh uestion of why write this book then The material has already been covered many times over by other authors I can see that Mansfield did take a different slant than other authors by emphasizing the godly aspect of the Guinness family And to give him credit he did emphasize this However I feel the emphasis was in a way to simply present the Christian ness of the Guinness s lives and leave out the other information Thus it was the godliness was emphasized because of there was little else to be emphasizedI enjoyed these thoughts from the bookRather than emphasize beer as an antidote to drunkenness as a healthy alternative to harder drinks that in excess ruined men s lives Prohibitionists treated all alcohol as the sameWhatever else you do do at least one thing very wellWe followed our traditional policy of considering long and acting uickly

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
