"This is one of those books that must delightfully confound publishers looking to pigeonhole its market. You Are There is part travelogue and part theologue. This book is full of warmhearted stories that remind you what the church could be if it was ever able to set aside its industrial-sized aspirations. Robert Campbell puts the 'pastoral' back into pastoring, and the 'local' back into the local church. But don't overlook it for a lack of scale. This book has as much ambition and challenge as anything that I have read in recent years. Campbell offers a theology of place, surprising with insight relevant to the millennial church, even as it leads us back toward our roots."
--Kenton C. Anderson, President, Northwest Baptist Seminary in Langley, British Columbia, and author of Choosing to Preach
"You Are There is a necessary conversation about a big-time issue, packaged in small-town practicality and warm, pastoral insight. Creation care, with all of its political and theological overtones, is too important to leave to the pundits and politicians. Christ-followers must take up the challenge of representing God in caring for both souls and soil, and you'll find no better guide than Robert Campbell. Read it once, and then read it again."
--David W. Hegg, Senior Pastor, Grace Baptist Church, Santa Clarita, CA
"This book is an encouraging and pastoral gift to the church today. Many of us, and many of our churches, are struggling to reconnect with and recover our calling to the people and places around us. Robert Campbell invites us into a life-changing part of his story, which is really the story of his humble but remarkable congregation, and how they are learning to live out the fullness of the gospel right where God has planted them. . . . I am often asked what it practically looks like for a local church to care for creation and love their neighbors--this book is one very good and hopeful answer. Read it and start applying its timely and valuable lessons."
