Down-to-earth, honest and real account of how God has changed a man, willing to risk everything to trust God. It will inspire and challenge you to experience God in your every-day life!

A great book for people who are seeking God but turned off by hypocritical and religious "Christians" who believe they are better than everyone else.

Someone gave us this movie and it sat on our dresser for months because we didn't recognize the actors and we knew it was a Christian themed movie. We would love to support more "family" movies like this but usually the acting is very poor (Sorry Kirk!).

Faith Like Potatoes was really good and engaging. I really wish it didn't have the "Christian" tag to it, because I think people are avoiding it for the reasons mentioned earlier. We watched it and decided we had to give it as gifts to others. It's a great movie with a good story, the fact that it's a true story makes it even more interesting.

I'd highly recommend it Christian or not.

God answers prayer! That was the theme of Faith Like Potatoes. And Jesus Christ moves in the lives of men and women, boys and girl even today. He is the way, the truth and the life and he is all that to Angus Buchan and each one who would repent and believe in Him. The book itself is a little choppy and mainly a recount of some of the amazing answers to prayer. It does not flow very well as far as the writing goes, but the message is still great.

A farmer named Angus is a workaholic farmer, putting 18 hours of work on his farm daily. He neglects his wife, and is easily irritated. In time, he is invited to a church function, which he grudgingly attends. He receives Christ as his Savior, and his faith grows to the point of attempting bold things for the Lord. He prays for, and gets, a giant high-priced stadium for a revival meeting. (What concerned him was not so much the violence of a few, but the apathy of the majority). He later takes the "foolish" step of faith in planting potatoes, even though there is a drought. If the crop fails, he will be ruined. People think that he is foolish. But God has other ideas.

Contrary to an editorial review, this work does not unilaterally portray blacks in a patronizing manner. At first, there indeed is racism. The white farmers think of the blacks as devious and unintelligent. For their part, the blacks think of the whites as some kind of out-of-touch thinkers of bizarre thoughts. Towards the end of the movie, however, the white farmer Angus expresses heartfelt gratitude to a local black for having helped make his farm successful. What's more, the prayer sessions unite blacks and whites petitioning God for rain and for an end to the murderous violence.

WARNING: There is a graphic account of a boy who had just fallen off a tractor and been run over by it. This may be upsetting to sensitive readers.

The book Faith Like Potatoes was lifechanging to me. I used to do drugs untill when saw a program on grassroots about Angus Buchan. I bought this book and it gave me courage and hope which changed my life within 2 weeks.

Today I am full of zeal for the Lord and God is as real as me and you.

Either God is who he says He is or He is not. This book just relates how tangeble and real God is.

All Glory to God.

This is a wonderful inspirational book -- a true story -- that was made into an equally great movie. Faith caused a dramatic positive change in this man's life, and he then became an evangelist who shared the Good News. I recommend the book, as well as the movie. Readers and viewers will be uplifted.

This is the incredible story of the goodness and love of God and how by grace the Spirit of God can change us into intruments to do His work and display it in power. The book has a presence of the Spirit that draws you through gentle conviction towards the challenge of surrendering your life completely to God in cheerful obedience.

The story will change your life forever. Read it together with a book written by Roland and Heidi Baker, called "Always Enough"
