From Christian libertarian farmer Joel Salatin, a clarion call to listeners to honor the animals and the land and to produce food based on spiritual principles.
Joel Salatin is perhaps the nation's best known farmer, whose environmentally friendly, sustainable Polyface Farms has been featured in Food, Inc. and Time magazine. Now, in his first audiobook written for a faith audience, Salatin offers a deeply personal argument for earth stewardship and calls for fellow Christians to join him in looking to the Bible for a foodscape in line with spiritual truth. Salatin urges Christians to rethink America's allegiance to cheap corporate food that destroys creation in its production, impoverishes third world countries, and supports oligarchical interests. He wonders why Christians ignore and even revel in unhealthy eating habits and factory farming that runs counter to God's design. With scripture and biblical stories, Salatin presents an alternative and shows listeners that in appreciating the pigness of pigs, we celebrate the glory of God.

A great book of at times hard question but wrote from love. I will have to buy this in paper format to share with key people in my faith community and to donate to local library. What a game changing read. Thank you
Loved it! Covered all the bases and then some. It is great that it's narrated by the author.
enjoyed hearing this man share his worldview with integrity. don't necessarily agree with everything but it is thought provoking.
"Non-Christian listener who found it very enjoyable"
Always enjoy a Salatin book. Will recommend to Christian friends and family. Thanks Again Joel.
"Enlightening and thought provoking"
I had never thought about God's stewardship in this way. Joel makes a lot of sense. I will be thinking about this when I make food choices.
"Nail on the Head"
Just like the author stated at the beginning, this book was definitely a breath of fresh air. I have been touching on these subjects for the past few years behind our pulpit, and will continue to do so. Most importantly, I pray for strength to be a doer and not just a hearer. I have agreed with and admired Joel's farming practices for years and hope to implement them on a much smaller scale on my property.
I love this book and I look forward to re hearing it again and again
"Profound! Life-altering! A confirmation of creation's glory!"
Joel's message is one that every Christian should here. He brings a wonderful balance of serious challenge without the typical preachiness and a heartfelt passion, kindness and humor. I don't think that anyone of depth could read this book without it challenging your world view of what God's stewardships of the earth that He intended us human to take part in.
"Honoring God, then the Animals & Earth He Created"
Joel resets the lost vision over the last century for farm life in an amazing story of truth told with the master of a wordsmith and joy and amusement from the very core of his being.
Every Christian should become familiar with the point of view contained in this book. Joel Salatin has really come out with one of the best descriptions of how we should take care of our bodies and planet. Win-win philosophy.
"Another great Joel Salatin audiobook!"
It "read" like Joel going on another ten or so hours of "Folks, this ain't normal." If you loved that, you'll love this. I've now loved both. Joel is perceptive, intelligent, and interesting.
Joel, where are your other books on audio? Get to work!
