God is doing the seemingly impossible in Silicon Valley—changing the hearts and attitudes of the rich and successful, and those desperately pursuing riches, power, and prestige. Having a tradition of disrupting the status quo with technology, Silicon Valley may be poised to challenge its perception as a wasteland of faith as well. Finding God in Silicon Valley tells how God is working in the lives of people in Silicon Valley—venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, leaders of major companies, innovators in non-profit start-ups, scientists, and technologists. You will be inspired and challenged as you read their journeys of faith.
The book provides lessons for anyone who has struggled with faith. You will read how these leaders got beyond the trappings of financial and business success to find God; how they overcame personal struggle and even tragedy to come to know Christ; how they reconciled reason and faith, and science and faith; and how they discovered meaning, purpose, and a calling for their lives.
The book's Foreword is written by Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, a $6 billion company. Included in the book are stories of venture capital luminaries such as venture capitalists Kevin Compton and Promod Haque, and Google executive Kirk Perry.
