New R.G. Pictorial Biography Crowdfunding Begins!

April 10th, 2018

R.G. LeTourneau changed the world with his God-given ingenuity, his giant earthmoving machines, and his commitment to serve Christ in his work.

The Center for Faith & Work wants all LeTourneau University students and alumni to have a copy of this captivating new biography: Working for God: The Story of R.G. LeTourneau and the University He Founded. The dramatic and inspiring story of LeTourneau's life and legacy unfolds in a four-color book you will be proud to display on your desk or coffee table. 

Why a new biography? R.G. LeTourneau's autobiography, Movers of Men and Mountains, was first published 55 years ago. Today's readers are skilled scanners, drawn to visually attractive and easily digestible information—a key feature of this new biography.

This new book appeals to five generations of readers and is a wonderful way for people to learn about our outstanding university and its founder, and how God loves to do extraordinary things through ordinary people.

We hope you will champion LeTourneau's legacy and help us get this beautiful, inspiring book into the hands of every LETU student! Your donation will be used to complete the cover, finalize the manuscript and interior graphic design—with over 50 historic photos from the R.G. LeTourneau Archives and colorful photos of the university today.

In the right margin, see how you can provide 5, 10, 25, 50, or 100 students a book and receive copies for yourself—our thank you for your tax-deductible donation. 

With your help, the book will be available by January, 2019. You and our current students will receive the first copies, before the book is officially released and available at the LeTourneau University Bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Christian book stores.
