"An inspiring road map to experiencing the joy of giving."--Holt Lunsford, founder and chairman, Holt Lunsford Holdings

Through a variety of innovative programs and initiatives, and flying mostly under the national news radar, Christian business leaders are bringing hope to blighted urban communities in our greatest cities. A Disruptive Generosity shares their inspiring stories.

From Dallas to New York City, from London to Singapore, lives and communities are being changed through strategic stewardship. These stories will challenge you to find innovative ways to use your resources as God's hands and feet in a hurting world.

Julian Archer, founder, Faith vs. Finance

"Stories are the currency of the day, and in his book Disruptive Generosity, Pier opens up a global treasure trove that shows the correlation of Kingdom movements and generous givers."

Daryl Heald, founder, Generosity Path

"God is the Ultimate Giver, Jesus is the Ultimate Disruptor. He changed it all. Scripture says 'The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller' (Proverbs 11:24), and in Mac's book we come to a better understanding of God's call to us to live bigger lives and to be change agents, disruptors, in a world that cries out for change. God is inviting us to reflect his generosity toward us through our generosity toward him and others; our giving changes the world and is the great apologetic of today!"

J. Todd Peterson, chairman, Pro Athletes Outreach; NFL kicker, 1993-2005; chairman emeritus, Seed Company

"Using biblical truths from Isaiah, Mac Pier shows how modern-day leaders demonstrate the faithfulness of God in their disruptive generosity. God is indeed the Great Choreographer using our modern-day generosity to fulfill his ancient promises."

Michal Powell, Dallas community leader
