God Knows Where They Come From

Four Faith Stories from Hokitika: A minister with an international ministry, a formator of priests, a national church leader, and a distinguished church historian – all from Hokitika on the isolated West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Growing up in Hokitika, these four were profoundly influenced by four distinct Christian streams – Anglican, Catholic, Methodist and Presbyterian.

In this unique book the Revd Ted Schroder, the Revd Dr Richard Waugh QSM, the Revd Father Steve Lowe, and the Revd Dr Allan Davidson ONZM, tell their stories in thoughtful ways – sociologically and theologically – about how their faiths were shaped and developed by their own church traditions in a small town context, and reflect on their continuing ministries.
