A fresh telling of the story of R. G. LeTourneau, the engineering genius who designed and built the giant earth-moving machines that helped win WW II and built the highway infrastructure of America--and founded an engineering school that today is the premier Christian polytechnic university in the world. He became the best-known Christian Businessman in the 20th Century and gave away 90 percent of his wealth.
Those who knew Robert Gilmore LeTourneau as a young boy were justifiably concerned about his future. The likelihood that a headstrong misfit and eighth-grade dropout could become a prolific inventor, renowned business leader, generous philanthropist and university founder would have seemed, understandably, preposterous.
But not to God.
God delights to redeem our shortcomings and empower the most unlikely individuals to accomplish exceedingly more than they can imagine, rousing them to fulfill their God-given calling and bring Him glory.
That is what God did for R. G. LeTourneau.
This distinctive book presents the inspiring story of LeTourneau’s God-empowered life, embraces his enduring legacy, and celebrates the innovative university he founded.
