Announcing My Upcoming Book, Born Again Dirt

Do you desire to glorify God through the way you farm? Are you tired of reading books on farming that deny God as Creator? Have you ever wondered what agriculture would look like if it was based on the Bible, instead of evolution, Mother Nature, or the latest and greatest manipulative science?
Born Again Dirt is a book written for Christian farmers (or Christians that grow anything) and seeks to give them a Biblical vision for agriculture. This book contends that the way we farm is not unrelated to our relationship with God. Rather, it should be a reflection of it!  As the title of the book communicates, if you are a born again farmer, your dirt needs to be born again as well.
The primary goal of Born Again Dirt is not to convince Christians to adopt a particular farming method. Instead, the intent is to encourage them to begin a journey of seeking to glorify the Lord through applying the principles of Scripture to every aspect of their farms. This book seeks to do that by taking a helpful, though not exhaustive, look at various Biblical principles and considering examples of practical application. Topics covered include:
-Developing a Biblical, agricultural worldview.
-Designing farms as beautiful, fruitful homes.
-Managing your farm as a steward
-Honoring God’s design in farm production
-Growing crops that honor the Lord
-Marketing as ministry
-The idolatry of modern agriculture
-Farming for the lifestyle
-Starting a born again farm
-Making a living farming
Without claiming to know all the answers, Born Again Dirt seeks to encourage you in your pursuit of God-glorifying agriculture . This book is a must read for any Christian who is a full time farmer, backyard gardener, or for anyone who desires a more Biblical view of agriculture.
Lord willing, Born Again Dirt will be released sometime next month. It will be available on my upcoming website, www.bornagaindirt.com. I really am looking forward to seeing how the Lord uses this book for the encouragement of the growing number of Christian farmers.
Currently I am working on editing, and would appreciate your prayers. I only have a short time to work on it before growing season hits. Over the next few weeks I will try to give you updates and more info as I make progress. To God be the Glory.

  1. There aren’t many voices today expressing a Biblical perspective on agrarian life. I would be very interested in reading your book. Let us know when it’s ready!

  2. Can’t wait to read your book Noah. If there’s anything I can do to help you promote it let me know. And I really like the cover you came up with…very “eye catchy”.

  3. I’m looking forward to reading your book. It sounds like something very needed in our culture today, especially in the Christian community. It must begin with God’s own people living out His Word in all aspects of life, including farming and homesteading.

  4. Noah, I listened to your interview with Kevin Swanson, and I’m really looking forward to reading your book! And perhaps meeting your family in Texas in July, too (?). Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom on this subject. It’s very timely, for sure.

  5. We are farmers in Australia..and absolutely loved yur book…bought one for a farmer friend .Good stewardship..sustainaability and family commitment is how I would sum up this book..Thank you..

  6. Hello! I looked for a contact section but couldn’t find one so I am leaving message here – I am on the hunt for books and other resources that talk about Christian animal husbandry. I will definitely check your book out; but, I have a real passion for animals. I eat meat but I do believe there is a lot wrong with today’s animal meat industries. As I look towards self sustained living, raising animals for a variety of reasons is at the top of my list. Any direction you can give me is greatly appreciated. Thanks for living bravely and fighting on this front for the Lord! Pls email me (or any other readers feel free to contact me) at. Rainesbrain@gmail.com – Thanks!
