Macomber, one of todays leading fiction writers with more than 100 million books in print, walks a new path with this nonfiction title. Ive just got to share the news, she says of her book on generosity. Intentional acts of generosity can open our lives to the very best God has to offer. Macomber builds her book on the biblical story of Jesus multiplication of five loaves and two fishes, a miracle recorded in all four gospels, using her storytelling prowess to retell the tale. She then takes readers on a journey through the true meaning of generosity (and its not about cash): encouragement, good deeds, forgiveness and believing the best. She also delves into giving, listening and hospitality, and dips into what generosity means when it comes to Christmas, caregiving and prayer. The theme, Macomber says, is, simply, to offer what you have. She fills out her chapters with real-life stories, suggestions for Simple Acts and brief Discovery sections. This is a useful, inspiring study of an underpracticed art, written by one who has received, given and witnessed generosity. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
