In farming, life is a daily struggle against the elements, and it is always unpredictable. Angus Buchan, a South African farmer of Scottish extraction, has learned from this unpredictability to rely upon God from day to day. A Farmer's Year shares the profound truths Angus has learned over many years of hard work. These daily readings will help you find courage and faith, bring you back to the true basics, and keep you in touch with God. "How arrogant we farmers sometimes become when we see a beautiful crop of wheat or corn, and have the audacity to take the credit," he writes. "We plant, and do our best to cultivate, but we must leave the rest to God."
