Why would a modern-day Scrooge toss $1 million in cash to strangers on the street? The Billionaire's Gift: A Spiritual Business Parable is an inspiring tale about finding greater meaning and purpose in our lives, whether we're rich or poor, young or old. The billionaire is a coldhearted CEO and modern-day Scrooge who reveres his vast assets, his corporate conquests, his hidden vaults of gold. But when his health fails, he finds that all of his riches cannot bring him joy, nor heal his spirit. He seeks a higher calling than the unending pursuit of earthly goods. To his surprise, the CEO receives guidance and comfort from his late parents and from his devout secretary, a sharp but often ignored businesswoman. The secretary has worked with the billionaire for decades. Yet, one callous act by him tests her loyalty like never before. As the soul-searching billionaire faces death, will his secretary find her belief renewed in him? And will a man of extraordinary wealth become a man of extraordinary faith? The Billionaire's Gift is a story of hope and transcendence that has floated in my mind for years. Parts of it were inspired by several writers and their fiction, including Leo Tolstoy's "Master and Man," Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," various biblical parables, Mitch Albom's "The Five People You Meet in Heaven," and Paulo Coelho's "The Pilgrimage." I'm a sucker for heroic spiritual journeys.
