AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this evocative memoir, Tim Costello explores the people and experiences that have shaped him into a socially active fighter for the world’s most challenging issues. Tracing each defining stage of his life with stark insight and honesty, Tim untangles his ongoing struggle to align his self-perceptions with his choices and what his life represents.

'More than a simple life story, this is a book about individual and community, public and private, spiritual and material, equality and liberty – and, most of all, about faith and its power to sustain in the face of the world’s big issues. Challenging and thought provoking no matter what your beliefs, this is a book to savour and re-read.'

— Review of A Lot with a Little Tim Costello , 2019 single work autobiography

'This autobiography by Tim Costello – Baptist minister, lawyer, anti-casino activist, CEO of World Vision Australia for thirteen years – is a clear and straightforward account of his life, free of obvious literary artifice. What Costello has tried to do, he says, is to understand and explain how his memories and experiences, especially of childhood and family life, have made him develop as an adult, often in ways that have become apparent only with maturity.' (Introduction)
