Self-made billionaire David Green, founder of America's craft store giant Hobby Lobby, tells shares the secrets he's learned to building a powerful legacy.
Generosity. It's the foundation for building a lasting legacy not just of money but also of the enduring values of faith, family, and openhanded living. In this book--part memoir, part personal manifesto--David Green shares lessons that can help you reap benefits for multiple generations.
In 1970, Green began making picture frames in his garage. With hard work, he and his wife, Barbara, turned that grassroots beginning into the world's largest privately owned arts-and-crafts retailer, employing thirty-two thousand people in more than seven hundred stores across forty-seven states.
Green's story includes inside details of the 2014 Supreme Court case over Hobby Lobby's right-to-life stance. But it's not all about business. Giving It All Away . . . and Getting It All Back Again changes the paradigm by emphasizing that true wealth is more than money--it's about faith, family, intellectual capital, and spiritual capital.
He has stayed true to this philosophy by adhering to three principles, which he shares in the book:
- Work with all your heart for God, not men
- Hold your plans lightly because you don't know what God has in store
- And consider now what you want your legacy to be
Green sees the life of giving as a life of adventure. But it's a life that pays the best rewards personally, offers a powerful legacy to your family, and changes those you touch.
In This Beautiful Book, Steve Green - founder of The Museum of the Bible - highlights life-changing themes woven through the mosaic of the Bible's various stories, reveals a new way to engage Scripture as a whole, and inspires deep appreciation for the Bible's connection to your life.
The most popular and culture-shaping text in the world, the Bible is still the least understood book of all time.
The Bible's collection of history, poetry, genealogy lists, and mystifying prophecies often prove puzzling to readers. And when this text is read in pieces, we're left with only a half-impression of the vibrant mosaic. This Beautiful Book highlights the thematic threads woven throughout the ancient writings and shows us a new way to engage with Scripture as a whole.
Through insights gained from firsthand experiences in leading and developing the first world class Bible museum, Green invites readers to step back from the individual stories of the Bible and consider the Bible as a whole. He reveals the completeness, connection, and transformative power of Scripture. Along with stunning retellings of biblical stories, Green helps readers see the story within the story, and draws the careful connections that help us appreciate the richness of the Bible story as a single story. Each page will spark or embolden your faith in a God who speaks to us across the centuries.
A truly captivating experience, this book will instill in you a deep appreciation for Scripture and its profound connection to your own life story.
Life keeps us running so fast and frenzied that we often lose sight of each day’s holy potential. Yet as a woman loved and called by God, your ordinary everyday matters more than you could possibly imagine.
Your choices today shape the legacy you leave for future generations. You are part of a story that has existed long before you and will long outlast you. And you can play a unique and irreplaceable role.

- Mary Magdalene, the first witness to Jesus’s resurrection.
- Catherine Booth, an early apologist for women’s rights and co-founder of the Salvation Army.

This Dangerous Book also looks at the link between the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, what we can learn from how the Bible was passed down to us, and why God's Word is foundational to America's past and crucial for its future.
The Bible is a world-changer and a heart-changer. Whether you have read the Bible for years or are simply curious about its influence, This Dangerous Book could change your heart as well.
