The innermost core-the veritable heart-of the teachings of Jesus, is the message of service and square-dealing, which means that it is, uncontrovertibly, one of human brotherhood. All this has been said before, you say. To be sure it has. But it is falling today, as never before, on listening ears.
-from "Service: Human and Divine"
An unusual business and spiritual autobiography, this 1923 book is American Midwestern entrepreneur Arthur Nash's life story, from his birth in post-Civil War Indiana and his upbringing amidst a confused religious environment to his embrace of Christianity and his building of a successful Cincinnati clothing company upon the laws of kindness and fellowship espoused by Jesus.
A prominent Freemason, Nash, who died in 1927, dedicated his life to the idea of human achievement fueled by a higher power, and this heartfelt work embraces and celebrates that philosophy.
