A Disruptive Generosity

A Disruptive Generosity: Stories of Transforming Cities Through Strategic Giving by Mac Pier is a collection of stories about people – people who took leaps of faith and made positive social change.

Each chapter focuses on the generous acts of different people; we learn about specific acts of generosity orchestrated by Ray and Denise Nixon, Terry Douglass and Doug Birdsall, Bob and Leslie Doll, Ram and Sunita Gidoomal, Mart Green, Santosh and Bhawna Shetty, Adam Walach, Keith Chua, and many others. One of my favorite chapters focused on Scott and Holly Wittman, who partnered with Habitat for Humanity.

The vast variety of stories makes for an interesting book. It is wonderful to read about people from so many different places who followed God’s call to help others. The book shows that everyone may have a different calling in life, but each person can use their calling to faithfully follow God. Read this book if you want to be inspired!
