From Christian libertarian farmer Joel Salatin, a clarion call to readers to honor the animals and the land, and produce food based on spiritual principles. What on earth is THE MARVELOUS PIGNESS OF PIGS? It's an inspiring call to action for people of faith . . . a heartfelt plea to heed the Bible's guidance . . . . It's an important and thought-provoking explanation of how by simply appreciating the marvelous pigness of pigs, we are celebrating the Glory of God. As a man of deep faith and student of the Bible, and as a respected and successful ecological family farmer, Joel Salatin knows that God created heaven and earth and meant for all living organisms to be true to their nature and their endowed holy purpose. He intended for us to respect and care for His gift of creation, not to ravage and mistreat it for our own pleasure or wealth. The example that inspires the book's title explains what Salatin means: when huge corporate farms confine pigs in cramped and dark pens, inject them with antibiotics and feed them herbicide-saturated food simply to increase profits, they are not respecting them as a creation of God or allowing them to express even their most rudimentary uniqueness - that special role that is part of His design. Every living organism has a God-given uniqueness to its life that must be honored and respected, and too often that is not happening today. Salatin shows us the long overlooked ethics and instructions in the Bible for how to eat, how to shop, how to think about how we farm and feed the world. Through scripture and Biblical stories, he shows us why it's more vital than ever to look to the good book rather than corporate America when feeding the country and your family. Salatin makes a compelling case for Christian stewardship of the earth and how it relates to every action we take regarding our food. He also opens our eyes to a common misconception many Christians may have about environmentalism: it's not a bad thing, and definitely not just the province of secular liberals; it's really a very good thing, part of heeding God's Word. With warmth and with humor, but with no less piercing criticism of the industrial food complex, Salatin brings readers on a fascinating journey of farming, food and faith. Readers will not say grace over their plates the same way ever again.

Jo Robinson's new book Pasture Perfect explains the far-reaching benefits of choosing meat, eggs, and dairy products from animals raised on pasture. Drawing on five years of research, Robinson explains that products from grass-fed animals are safer and more nutritious than conventional ones, and why raising animals this way is also better for the environment. What's more, the animals live low-stress, more natural lives. Chickens are free to graze on greens, scratch for insects, enjoy sun baths, and roost in comfort. Cattle, bison, dairy cows and lambs are truly contented as they graze on green pasture, breathe fresh air, and stay on the farm from birth until market.Robinson is the first to gather all the scientific evidence proving that pastured products are safer and more nutritious. As readers will learn, meat from grass-fed animals is free of hormones, antibiotics and mad cow disease. It is also higher in Vitamin E, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids, and the newly discovered cancer-fighting fat called "CLA." Eggs and dairy products from pastured poultry and dairy cows have similar benefits.Pasture Perfect does more than explain the benefits of pastured products—it also helps you locate, store, and cook them. You will appreciate the 60 pages of recipes that are designed to bring out the tenderness and flavor of this highly nutritious, environmentally friendly food.Accurate and carefully referenced, Pasture Perfect is the definitive book on this greenest of industries.

When Sarah and Tom Arthur were appointed to a suburban church after three years in an urban Christian community, they faced a unique challenge: how to translate the practices of "radical" faith into their new context. Together with their friends and fellow church members Erin and Dave Wasinger, the Arthurs embarked on a yearlong experiment to implement twelve small practices of radical faith--not waiting until they were out of debt or the kids were out of diapers or God sent them elsewhere, but right now. This book is Sarah and Erin's story, told with humor, theological reflection, and practical insight, exploring such practices as simplicity, hospitality, accountability, sustainability, and social justice--but, most of all, discernment. Along the way readers will consider how God might be calling them to embark on their own year of small but radical changes, right where God has planted them. Each chapter includes discussion questions and suggested readings. Foreword by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove. For more information, visit [www.YearofSmallThings.com](http://www.YearofSmallThings.com).
