Catholic and Dominican InstituteOn Tuesday, March 15, the Mount's Catholic and Dominican Institute and the School of Business present Stephen Mansfield, who will discuss his book, "The Search for God and Guinness."

According to Mansfield, "I wrote this book on Guinness just as my office television portrayed all the horrors of the Wall Street collapse of recent years. It made me love the Guinness story all the more. In fact, I began to see in the Guinness tale an antidote to much that plagues corporations today. I found it refreshing.”

“As I wrote in the introduction of this book, ‘I knew I had found it: that earthy, human, holy tale of a people honing a craft over time and of a family seeking to do good in the world as an offering to God. This was what my weary soul needed—a story thick like the smell of barley at the St. James Gate brewery and as filled with the bitter and the sweet as any generational tale is likely to be.’ I love the Guinness story.”


MansfieldStephen Mansfield is a New York Times bestselling author and a popular speaker who coaches leaders worldwide. He first rose to global attention with his groundbreaking book, The Faith Of George W. Bush, a bestseller that Time magazine credited with helping to shape the 2004 U.S. presidential election. The book was also a source for Oliver Stone’s award-winning film “W.”

Mansfield’s The Faith Of Barack Obama was another international bestseller. He has written celebrated biographies of Booker T. Washington, George Whitefield, Winston Churchill, Pope Benedict XVI, and Abraham Lincoln, among others. Publishers Weekly described his book, Killing Jesus, as “masterful.” His recent Mansfield’s Book Of Manly Men is inspiring men’s events around the world.

Mansfield’s latest book, The Miracle of the Kurds, is a timely introduction to the Kurdish people that has reached bookstores just as Kurdish troops are standing heroically against the evils of ISIS in the Middle East. The book has been named “Book of the Year” by Rudaw, the leading Kurdish news service.

Mansfield speaks widely about men, leadership, faith, the power of heritage, and the skills required to shape modern culture. He is also an in-demand leadership coach whose firm, The Mansfield Group, is based in Washington D.C. Mansfield lives in Nashville and the nation’s capital with his wife Beverly, an award-winning songwriter and producer.
