Publisher Weekly reviewFrom the April 12 issue of Publishers Weekly
Don?t scoff at the idea of a pastor who is also a farmer writing about Jesus? parable of the sower. Robinson is the real deal - a farmer who lived off the land for two decades, raising children with his wife and without electricity. He is also founding pastor of Vineyard Boise Church and author of several books, including Saving God?s Green Earth: Rediscovering the Church?s Responsibility to Environmental Stewardship. The book resonates with the injunction to live simply so others can simply live and has a profound simplicity of message and tone. Sometimes focus is lacking; many specific details of people and places are interesting - young lovers in a cabin - but other details belong in memoir, which the book doesn?t claim to be; they bog down the exposition. In the end, the book redeems itself by its humility and raw edge - ?Notice me,? the author confesses as a young man. In a gently admonitory tone the author offers a radical call to all believers to join in the harvest of a healthy crop of followers in the fields of the Lord.

I warmed to this book from the opening pages of the introduction. I like authors who write out of the depth of their own experience and Tri Robinson certainly does that. He is both a farmer and a pastor, with a genuine concern to integrate both callings. One day when he was preparing to preach on the parable of the sower, he found it leapt off the page and into his life in a new way. The desire to grow a big church simply for growth's sake left him, and he experienced a new hunger to minister deeply to people and build a relevant, culture-changing church where Christians translated grace and mercy into real life. The pages that follow are full of stories - more parables - which compare our life and walk with Jesus to the seed nestling into the good soil, taking root and growing to maturity. It is not a 'quick-fix' book, but will give you many helpful guidelines to help you persevere as a disciple of Jesus.
