    Can God Use a Beer-Brewing Company? (Interview w/ Dr. Stephen Mansfield)

    Can God Use a Beer-Brewing Company? (Interview w/ Dr. Stephen Mansfield)

    On this episode, Dr. Stephen Mansfield shares the remarkable legacy of devout Christian businessman Arthur Guinness, whose beer-brewing company changed the world. 
    Stephen Mansfield is a New York Times best-selling author and a popular speaker who leads a speaker training firm based in Washington DC. He is also a part time Senior Fellow of Public Leadership and Director of the Center for Biblical Leadership at Palm Beach Atlantic University. 

    He first rose to global attention with his groundbreaking work, The Faith of George W. Bush, a New York Times bestseller that Time magazine credited with helping to shape the 2004 US presidential election. The book was a source for Oliver Stone’s award-winning film "W." Mansfield's The Faith of Barack Obama was another international bestseller. He has written celebrated biographies of Booker T. Washington, George Whitefield, Winston Churchill, Pope Benedict XVI, and Abraham Lincoln, among others. 

    Stephen's humorous but fiery Mansfield's Book of Manly Men has inspired men's events around the world. The Miracle of the Kurds has been selected as "Book of the Year" by Rudaw, the leading Kurdish news service. As a result of this book, Mansfield has become a respected voice in support of the Kurds worldwide. 

    Mansfield speaks widely about about men, leadership, faith, the power of heritage, and the skills required to shape modern culture. He also leads The Mansfield Group, a speaker training firm based in Washington, DC, that works with top politicians, CEOs, educational institutions, and artists. 

    He’s also the author of the book, The Search for God and Guinness: A Biography of the Beer that Changed the World, which we’re going to learn about today.

The Mentors I Never Had

Love this podcast, it has changed my life finding such a resource and network of believers who are capable and experienced leaders.

I want to know - do any episodes touch on the concept of rejection? That’s been a hard one for me in my journey lately.

Keep it up! Thanks,
Grace
