About the Author

Brian Polkinghorne was born and raised on a wheat and sheep farm in South Australia. He trained as a minister of religion and later as an agriculturalist.
With his wife, Jill, and three small children, he went to Tanzania in 1970 to work in church-orientated agricultural training and development. After eight years' work there, the family returned to Australia, where Brian ministered in the Uniting Church in Australia. In 1990 Brian was called back to Tanzania to direct a large reforestation project, and he then initiated another church-directed agricultural training institute before returning to Australia in 2005 for 'refirement'. Since then, Brian and Jill have spent another three years in Tanzania on three different assignments. Back in Australia, Brian has continued in part-time ministry and Jill has been effectively involved in a wide variety of educational training activities, both in Tanzania and Australia.
