“At first blush it might seem a wee bit sacrilegious to parallel the history of Christianity with the history of beer, but Stephen Mansfield makes us wonder why no one has done it before. The strands come together in the person of Arthur Guinness, an 18th century entrepreneur who was to beer what Mayer Rothschild was to bonds. In this smart, good-humored, always-engaging book, Mansfield makes a quietly serious case for the essential role that faith has played not only in the Guinnesses’ success but also in the evolution of democratic capitalism.”

Jack Cashill, author of Hoodwinked and editor of Ingram’s business magazine
