THE ULTIMATE TRUTH ABOUT MONEY
Is it better to be short-term rich or long-term wealthy? Wouldn’t it be wise to understand how steep the trade-off is between short-term pleasure and long-term well-being?
Roger Lam is the author of Lost and Found: Money vs. Riches and Lose to Find: Change of Control. He worked in the banking and finance industry for almost twenty-five years after graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Cornell University in 1993. Having discovered in the past few years that Stewardship is his true calling, Lost and Found: Money vs. Riches was Roger Lam’s first attempt at telling his own story intertwined with money, sharing his counterintuitive, God-orchestrated journey of being set free from the slavery to money by following the countercultural Biblical teachings on wealth and possessions. His latest book, Lose to Find: Change of Control, documents the unexpected continuation of his supernatural journey in spiritual transformation, extending to other aspects of his life beyond the area of money.
He is now a full-time, alternative missionary with a God-given vision to unveil the deceitfulness of wealth to Christ-followers globally, in the hope to cure the root problem of many social ills.
He lives in Hong Kong with his wife Sylvia and their children Danielle and Enoch.
LATEST BOOK I’VE WRITTEN
Lose to Find: Change of Control reads like a Christ follower’s diary of wrestling with surrender. Despite constantly feeling like the most unlikely spokesperson and champion for stewardship and generosity, it became clear to Roger Lam that God was not satisfied to leave the other areas of his life besides money remaining in his control–his vocation, safety and purpose. Continuing in the same authenticity and conversational tone for which readers around the world have shown appreciation in his first book, Roger Lam humorously shares his continued God-ordained spiritual transformation, going beyond the area of money which (he thought) he had already mastered. This new leg of his Spirit-filled journey entails unimaginable, interlinked supernatural adventures starting in Hong Kong, followed by divine appointments in Beijing, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, South India, Shanghai and Washington D.C. all within a calendar year.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE BOOK
He is transparent, gritty, humble and candid regarding his relationship with money and, by God’s grace, the ensuing redemption and transformation in his life. You won’t want to put it down and I believe you’ll find it to be a very worthwhile investment of time.
This book, as a sequel to Roger’s earlier journey in Lost and Found: Money vs. Riches, is written in such an intimate, fallible way that it resonates deeply to my very own brokenness and reminds us of God’s redeeming strength through our weaknesses. Roger opens himself up in true companionship with those who are willing to struggle (with money and beyond) to walk in faith, willing to strive in God’s way and not their own way.
Roger Lam has written a compelling biography of how God intervenes in the life of a senior Christian marketplace leader. It is a challenging story of trusting God to envision others to maximize their God-given assignment.”
In a real and authentic, often humorous, voice, Roger once again artfully presents hard truths in a velvet package. Lose to Find: Change of Control (and its predecessor Lost and Found: Money vs. Riches) provides a delightful retell- ing of the adventure with and joyful discovery of a divine God who loves us and cares for every detail of our lives. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in growing in the area of generosity and stewardship, not only of their finances but also of their hearts.
OTHER BOOKS I’VE WRITTEN
In Lost and Found: Money vs. Riches, Roger Lam shares his counterintuitive, God-orchestrated journey of setting free from the slavery to money by following the countercultural Biblical teachings on wealth and possessions. Along the way, he had to repeatedly confront and overcome his underdog mindset, which was a byproduct of his sense of insecurity. Some of the stories are nothing short of supernatural. Without a doubt, Roger Lam has suffered monetary losses in his lifetime, but what he found instead over the course of his journey is of infinite and eternal value. By telling his story with great transparency and vulnerability, the life lessons that can be extracted from each chapter are potentially transformative and redemptive to our world, which has been blinded to awareness of the real truth of provision.
