Islands of Faith engages the reader in a never-before written collection about the peoples of New Zealand. The volume opens the doors of faithful Kiwis—from Omamari, near the country’s northern tip, to Invercargill, close to the nation’s southern-most point. Authors Randall and Linda Ripplinger invite you into the homes, hearts, and lives of 31 New Zealand families, and they will leave you with wonder at how so many are making so much of life despite their trials.
