Sustainable Agriculture: A Christian Ethic of Gratitude
Mark E. Graham
Longtime readers of the ERB and fans of Wendell Berry’s work will not be surprised that a book linking agriculture and gratitude appears on this list. “In Sustainable Agriculture, Graham creates a vibrant, substantive discussion about the moral issues in American agriculture. He does so by revealing what is going on in current agricultural practices and analyzing them in light of morality and sustainability. Graham’s constructive proposal for change is based on a moral vision that identifies a series of core values around which our agricultural system should be developed, including: a) a consistent, safe food supply; b) vital, sustainable communities; and c) personal and environmental health.”
