What matters more when you leave this earth: friends or wealth? Well, John Oliver Nelson was born rich, but died poor. He also died beloved and well-known through his role as a Presbyterian minister and Yale Divinity Professor, and his founding of Kirkridge Retreat Center in Bangor, Pennsylvania. By practicing Christ’s mandate to feed the hungry and care for the poor, Jack Nelson died with little in the bank but a wealth of friends, friends so dear that they funded the writing of his biography, “JON: John Oliver Nelson and the Movement for Power in the Church,” written by Sister Rita Yeasted.
Yeasted takes after her subject’s ways, by donating all profits from “JON” to Kirkridge. For this reason, the marketing of this book relies heavily on the promotion by those who appreciate it.
