The work of social critics is vital for the health and flourishing of the church, because they remind us of the brokenness of the world and challenge us to imagine new and more healthy ways of sharing life together.

Here are ten social critics whose work has been particularly helpful for me in trying to discern how to live faithfully in the twenty-first century. With each critic, I’ve included an excerpt that will serve as an introduction to that writer’s work.

 

Wendell Berry

A Kentucky farmer and writer, Berry’s work challenges us to live peacefully within the created created and to find ways to vitalize our local communities.

Some people think literature is high culture and that it should only have a small readership. I don’t think so… I have to compete with popular culture, including TV, magazines, movies and video games.

The Wake Up Call – January 12, 2015

 

Gratitude

Gratitude should guide our daily lives, and indeed it is at the heart of a different way of being, and as John Pattison and I have argued in SLOW CHURCH, it is at the heart of a different sort of economy.  Here are five classic poems that express gratitude for the abundant life of creation.

Wendell Berry

Today is the 80th birthday of Kentucky farmer/writer Wendell Berry!

I realize that there is some irony in doing this (Berry was, after all, the man who stood firm and penned “Why I am not going to buy a computer“), but to commemorate the occasion we offer the Top 10 online recordings of Berry to date. These recordings, some brief and some long, serve as a wonderful guide to the breadth and depth of Wendell Berry’s work: fiction, poetry, technology, community, land, etc., all the great genres and themes in which he has written.

***  Books by Wendell Berry  |  Poetry   |  Fiction  ***

Hope you enjoy these recordings!
