Land of the Living: Christian Reflections on the Countryside
Virtualbookworm Publishing, 03.10.2005 - 256 Seiten
A flourishing earth that reflects the diversity, bounty, and beauty of its Creator must be cared for. There are compelling reasons for all Christians - rural and urban - to be concerned for the land. If you love the Creator, you must love his creation, and to love his creation, you must love the communities that are charged with looking after it. "Land of the Living" reflects on some of the pressures on agricultural communities today, and argues that the land is still spiritually important and has an important place in God's eternal purposes. Issues such as urbanisation, technology, mobility, and the importance of roots, globalisation, and food are viewed through the twin lenses of rural life and theology.
