The Search For God And Guinness – Stephen Mansfield

Whether you like beer or not this is a great book.  In the book Mansfield gives the history of the famous Guinness family that started the brewery that carries the family name.  He gives a brief history of beer leading up to Arthur Guinness, and then gives some family background.  He carries the story on through the three main lines of the Guinness’; the Brewing Guinness’, The Banking Guinness’, and the Guinness’ for God.  In the story you find deep faith and trust in God, a sense to do all as in a duty to God, a concern for radical social and religious equality, business innovation and ups and downs of a family conglomerate.  Upon finishing the book you will have a surprising love and admiration for this famed family.
