Discover a Christ who is alive and active in the lives of ordinary people. In a culture where those who claim the name of Christ seem to live most of their days in apathy and spiritual boredom, From Plowing to Preaching shares event after event of God’s personal intervention in providing leadership, provision, and blessings.
