In this evocative memoir, Tim Costello explores the people and experiences that have shaped him into a socially active fighter for the world's most challenging issues. Tracing each defining stage of his life with stark insight and honesty, Tim untangles his ongoing struggle to align his self-perceptions with his choices and what his life represents.

More than a simple life story, this is a book about individual and community, public and private, spiritual and material, equality and liberty - and, most of all, about faith and its power to sustain in the face of the world's big issues. Challenging and thought provoking no matter what your beliefs, this is a book to savour and re-read.

Praise for Tim Costello and his bestselling books, Hope and Faith:
'Tim has an extraordinary moral compass and sense of how the world needs to change.' - Paul Ronalds, CEO, Save the Children 'He just lives it [his faith].' - Nick Xenophon '

'I've known Tim Costello to be a man of faith who always speaks his mind - often as a powerful, prophetic voice for God's concern for justice and for the poor. Tim's thoughtful honesty is on display in his latest book, Faith, as he mines his life experiences to bring out how our beliefs shape us and enable us to makes sense of and engage in an often confounding world.' - Richard Stearns, President, World Vision U.S.
