What would you do to inherit a million dollars? Would you be willing to change your life? Jason Stevens is about to find out in Jim Stovall's The Ultimate Gift.
Red Stevens has died, and the older members of his family receive their millions with greedy anticipation. But a different fate awaits young Jason, whom Stevens, his great-uncle, believes may be the last vestige of hope in the family.
"Although to date your life seems to be a sorry excuse for anything I would call promising, there does seem to be a spark of something in you that I hope we can fan into a flame. For that reason, I am not making you an instant millionaire."
What Stevens does give Jason leads to The Ultimate Gift. Young and old will take this timeless motivational story to heart.

Deb Cavagnaro5 Stars Out Of 5January 1, 2008Deb CavagnaroI loved this book, gave it to my kids and niece and nephews for Christmas. I am also using it in my High School Sunday School class. I liked the book better than the movie but the movie is ok. I plan to by more for a bunch of my friends. My college aged daughter called as soon as she finished it to tell me it really made her think and to plan to do some things differently.
