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
This is a wonderful book for Christians especially if you have any interest in food, farming, or nature. Joel is the man, although at times he is a little long winded, making this a book that's hard to "binge" if you will. Highly recommend!!
"a very important message for the church"
Joel salatin has put into words something I have been feeling for a while. When you look at industrial Farms you know they're wrong this tells you why.
Thank you Joel! What an amazing work. I love the bridge building that Joel does with such skill and care from a lifetime of experience living in two (seemingly) different words that should have far more in common.
"The "Lunatic Farmer" did it again!"
Oh, man. I can't wait to see what non-Christians have to say about this book! Personally, I loved it! I love that Mr. Salatin calls out his fellow Christian farmers to actually treat the Earth the way Jesus himself would! I also love that he calls out non-Christians on their prejudices towards Christians! This book is basically a call for everyone to stop name calling and just do what's right on their farms and with their purchase power. ON POINT, MR. SALATIN!
