In the fall of 2016, my wife and I moved to rural Tennessee to help my father and stepmother on their farm. So with no experience in farming or livestock, we faced a huge learning curve. We’d never driven a tractor, herded cattle, or helped birth a calf.

   The first year we tried doing something to the farm, but we soon realized the farm was doing things to us. We had no idea the cows would take us under their wings and teach us how to care for them, and whether you’re a farmer or just a lover of cows, this book of devotionals will speak life to you. For Cows have much to teach us about life and the gospel.

    The Gospel According to Cows contains 60 devotionals that will teach you about cows, God and country. Each devotional begins with a topic on the secret lives of cows and ends with a quote from Spurgeon or a late-great pilgrim father, creating a hybrid text that will instruct you about cows and the gospel according to cows. The result is a power packed devotional that will lead the reader to the heart of God.
