About-

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.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Stories of Life is filled with faith affirming tales and anecdotes that traverse life’s emotional landscape: despair yields to hope; tears mingle with wonder; and joy is sprinkled liberally through its pages.

Simon Kennedy, filmmaker and past president of Omega Writers
