The Gecko Renewal: And Other Stories of LifeJames Cooper, Mark Worthing (Ed)
In The Gecko Renewal and other Stories of Life, ordinary Australians share their extraordinary stories of life and faith.
We find people encountering God through falling snakes, women's roller derby, a prison riot, a broken down car, an unexploded bomb and even a humble gecko. The stories included in this year's collection take place in far-flung corners of the world, the outback, a prison and suburban backyards. Some recall great adventures and life-threatening experiences. Others describe profound encounters with a gracious God through seemingly ordinary events. But all of them show that there is something truly extraordinary to be seen when God works in the lives of ordinary people.
