Making Peace with the Land

Making Peace with the Land by Fred Bahnson & Norman Wirzba
God's Call to Reconcile with Creation


What a refreshing read after "The Worst Hard Times!" The Dust Bowl book was 300 pages of despair caused by poor farming, conversely this book is 173 pages of hope! There are people out there that understand the blessedness of creation care and to top it off, are committed to transferring this knowledge and practice around the world to food desperate places.
