Product Description

When an industrialist invites God into his business, miracles happen.

Despite never having gotten past seventh grade in school and experiencing many failures early on, R.G. LeTourneau rose to eminence in the competitive world of manufacturing and construction. Although his competitors thought him insane, history has proven that his inventive genius was decades ahead of its time.

LeTourneau's story is one of the weak confounding the mighty and his message is that what he has done, anyone can do with God's help. He tells his story with a beautiful humility and it reads as if he is sitting in an armchair across from you just reminiscing and sharing his life.

"Some people think I'm all mixed up---that you can't serve the Lord and business, too, but that's just the point. God needs businessmen as partners as well as preachers. . . . When you go into partnership with God, you've got a Partner closer and more active than any human partner you can ever get. He participates fully in everything you let Him do, and when you start putting on airs, and thinking you're doing it with your own head of steam, He can set you down quicker and harder than a thunderbolt. There's nothing dull about being in partnership with God."

    This book underscores that God can use anyone who is willing to sumit ALL to him. Mr LeTourneau shows us that you can have complete integerty in business and still suceed.

    This book has been a tremendous inspiration to me in my walk with God.

    Through the years I have bought a number of these books, which I give to men who are searching for a relevance of God in their lives and businesses. A great inspiring read.

    R.G.'s story is a great inspiration to me as an engineer and Christian. It is a testimony of the truth of God's word - if we seek His wisdom it is granted freely; if we give our best for His glory we will be blessed. I am really itrigued by Mr LeTourneau's development of welded construction and advanced understanding of the welding process, which is taken for for granted in industry now. My most recent purchase was as a gift.

    A great read for a great price! RG LeTourneau shows what it means to live for God and work with and for him. Realistic and down to earth - its certainly not all 'health and wealth' that is preached. LeTourneau was strong in his faith and his desire to put God in his business, even when others weren't as enthusiastic.
