In this much anticipated memoir, Tim Costello takes us with him on a journey through his whole life. In a thoughtful and stimulating way, Tim explores his childhood and beyond including the main influences on his development as a socially active fighter for the world's most challenging issues. He introduces those who have helped him to look beyond himself and to see where and how he can make a difference. Integral to who Tim Costello is, he explains how his faith has sustained him when confronted with the big issues facing our world.

Challenging and thought provoking no matter what the status of your faith, A Lot with A Little is a book to savour and re-read.
