A Lot with a Little [9781743795521]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

In this evocative memoir, Tim Costello explores the people and experiences that have shaped him into a socially active fighter for the world's most challenging issues. Tracing each defining stage of his life with stark insight and honesty, Tim untangles his ongoing struggle to align his self-perceptions with his choices and what his life represents.

More than a simple life story, this is a book about individual and community, public and private, spiritual and material, equality and liberty - and, most of all, about faith and its power to sustain in the face of the world's big issues. Challenging and thought provoking no matter what your beliefs, this is a book to savour and re-read.

Praise for Tim Costello and his bestselling books, Hope and Faith:

'Tim has an extraordinary moral compass and sense of how the world needs to change.' - Paul Ronalds, CEO, Save the Children

'He just lives it [his faith].' - Nick Xenophon

'Thoughtful, fascinating, broad-ranging read.'- Amazon review

'Costello's passion for spirituality, justice, and peace are evident, and his dedication to the struggle for equality and universal human rights is rooted in his faith. The quick, punchy chapters, accented with personal anecdotes, are a treat, and the narrative style is inviting and clear. This is a must-read for Christians looking to reconsider how faith affects lives on the most basic levels.' - Publishers Weekly

'Reading Faith is just like sharing an evening with Reverend Tim Costello - an evening rich with stories, wide-ranging, warmly engaging and infused with Tim's spirit of generosity and curiosity. Tim shares insights from years of travels across the world, as he encounters humanity at its best and its worst. Perhaps it's because his deep Christian faith has been tested and challenged in so many ways, Tim's reflections speak powerfully to the lives of seekers and believers alike. Whenever Tim's at the table, there's always space for another person - so pull up a chair!' - Tim Dixon, Managing Director Purpose.com, board member of Sojourners, co-founder of The Syria Campaign and More In Common

'I've known Tim Costello to be a man of faith who always speaks his mind - often as a powerful, prophetic voice for God's concern for justice and for the poor. Tim's thoughtful honesty is on display in his latest book, Faith, as he mines his life experiences to bring out how our beliefs shape us and enable us to makes sense of and engage in an often confounding world.' - Richard Stearns, President, World Vision U.S.

'Tim Costello is one of the clearest and most prophetic thinkers and voices on the relationship between faith and public life that we have in our world today. Faith is a compelling account of his personal journey and, through it, a remarkable portrait of the true meaning of faith.' - Jim Wallis, New York Times bestselling author of America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America, president of Sojourners, and editor-in-chief of Sojourners magazine.
