  • Todd Peterson
    "My friend Raymond is as kingdom minded and gospel focused as anyone I know in the business world. He and his family want their lives to count for the few things that will last forever and matter most. This focus drives his and his wife’s every decision. They live within the reality of “to whom much is given much is required,” and this helps them make the most of every opportunity. Their stewardship is bearing enduring fruit, and I have no doubt they will hear our Lord say, “Well done.” God gave them many talents, and they are investing them wisely and offering all the return back to God. You’ll enjoy Raymond’s story in Enduring Wealth."

    "I’ve been waiting for this book for five years—ever since the day Raymond Harris told me he was trying to figure out how one converts the currency of the world into the treasures of heaven (see Matthew 6:20). His answer is a stunning vision of God’s kingdom economy. This extraordinarily personal and practical book will prove valuable for anyone, but it’s especially relevant for the rich and those who partner with them. It should be a required textbook for the growing impact and faith-driven investment communities and every Christian nonprofit. I am deeply blessed to know Raymond as a friend, and reading his book is like having a conversation with him. He’s simply the real deal."
