Learning the Language of the Fields

Here’s a treasure trove of a book for those of us who are trying to focus our Christian faith in a world of ecological crisis and promise.  Scholar/steward Daniel Deffenbaugh convenes a roomful of voices–historical, mythological, agricultural, literary, philosophical, biological and spiritual–to help us learn again the long-forgotten language of the living things around us.  I have had this book on the corner of my desk for months. I only wish that Cowley Publications had included an index. This is a serious work of scholarship and a hopeful human guide for finding our way back to organic connection  with our earthly home.  Learning the Language of the Fields, Tilling and Keeping as Christian Vocation by Daniel G. Deffenbaugh.
