About the Book

Who among us hasn’t spent hours allowing our minds to fantasize that we have won the lottery or in some way suddenly become wealthy beyond our dreams? We appease and excuse ourselves by planning how we would share with our family and someway make the lives of countless needy people so much better by handing them wads of cash. As our daydream finally resolves into reality, we know it was just a dream having no basis in the real world. However, what if we allow our mind to consider for a moment that God, who we would agree can do whatever he desires, might find an unworthy but available person to receive a gift that would surpass most of us “daydreamers” wildest imagination. This book follows the receiver of the Gift as he is forced to leave his birth home in East Texas with a bullet hole in his side and follows him through many terrible troubles and heartaches, including a stint with the U.S. Marines in Viet Nam that costs him a foot. However, as he begins to exercise the Gift, he transforms from a starving young man eating from garbage cans to the richest man on the planet. He faces multiple hardships and abuse and faces his personal fears. In the end, he overcomes all that and learns to use his wealth to benefit others.
