Books & Audio
Beginning from a keen awareness of their Christian responsibility to the environment and their neighbours, Peter and Miranda develop a vision for a project that combines cross-cultural evangelism, community living and conservation. This book describes their experiences, the challenges that were overcome, and the people involved in making it happen. It also provides an exploration of the Christian commitment to conservation as an act of worship and of mission.
God Doesn’t Do Waste is a story about the messiness that human beings wade through in every area of their lives, and about a God who can take all that seems most wasteful and useless and recycle it into something of infinite worth.
Bonus – this audio comes with video, including slides of David’s presentation!
