Economic meltdown? Been there. In the 1980s, I was a real estate developer in Florida. Then came the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Every day for the next seven years I woke up fighting a multi-million dollar bankruptcy.
By God’s grace, I was able to avoid bankruptcy and not only survive, but experience extraordinary spiritual growth. In fact, it was during those years that I wrote The Man in the Mirror. Now, I want to share what I learned and help others.
So when the stock market collapsed in September, 2008, I wrote How to Survive the Economic Meltdown. Then, a few weeks ago, I realized a lot of parents can’t afford to take their children to McDonald’s, much less afford a book. So I decided to give the book away to anyone who wants a copy—no strings attached. I’m on a mission.
I want to get the word to as many churches as possible to put a “free book” announcement in their church bulletins—preferably for several weeks in a row, given the “five touch” rule for getting people’s attention. Here’s the suggested bulletin announcement:
How can you help? First, put this announcement in your church’s bulletin for several weeks. Second, email, fax, or blog this to your pastor friends. Third, if you have denomination-wide influence, blast this out to your churches. There’s no limit on the number of free books.
For the glory of Christ and no other reason,
