Review: Giving It All Away...and Getting It All Back Again

In David Green's practical quasi-memoir, Giving It All Away...and Getting It All Back Again: The Way of Living Generously (Zondervan, 2017), the CEO and founder of Hobby Lobby reflects on a lifestyle of trusting God through financial and legal troubles. The master business leader tells of the famous Supreme Court battle involving the company and ruminates on a life that trusted God with the resources he has been given.

This book, however, is not about his personal struggles so much as it is a theological discussion of generosity. Applying the doctrines of God's sovereignty to a corporate setting, Green offers practical advice on becoming a generous steward of God's resources. Green argues that this radical generosity has a boomerang effect that, if we are responsible to God's creation, his providence will spill into our lives.

Giving It All Away is a fantastic read for those who want to learn from a Christian businessperson on the integration of faith, work, and economics and comes highly recommended.
