In A Chicken Can Make a Difference, 34 ordinary Australians share their extraordinary stories of life and faith. This collection features the best writing from the 2016 Stories of Life Creative Writing Awards and provides a glimpse of the many ways in which God is at work in people’s lives. We find here extraordinary accounts of conversion, answers to prayer, life-changing adventures, and of God’s grace in dealing with illness and loss. A simple yet profound story called A Chicken Can Make a Difference sums up well the essence of this collection of stories about seemingly ordinary things, people and events that end up making an extraordinary difference when the grace of God is involved.
