Item Description...
"Something is bound to go terribly wrong when so many Christians see the planet as an unimportant holding place where we await salvation; or when preachers and teachers of the faith place too much emphasis on humanity's provileged status without also explaining our responsibilities to tend the garden; or when Christians see God as transcendent but not immanently present in creation. The result, according to religious studies professor Daniel Deffenbaugh, is twofold; an ecological crisis and an evident exodus of ecologically sensitive individuals from churches across the country.

Publishers Description
Deffenbaugh calls us to live in a reciprocal relationship with our biotic communities-the plants, animals, and other non-human cultures that share our particular places in the world. By rerooting our global lifestyles in the ecological knowledge of our homes, we may truly begin to mend the health of our planet. Deffenbaugh marries Christian theology and spiritual disciplines with Native American mythology and the practice of organic gardening to deepen our engagement with the places in which we live."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ecology, Theology, Community  Dec 10, 2007
In Daniel Deffenbaugh's book, he combines these three elements -- ecology, theology, and community -- with ease. As he narrates his own journey from an early life full of doses of "Walt Disney and suburbanism" to living on a farm in East Tennessee, Deffenbaugh maintains a strong theological argument (28). He draws on historic theology, but he mixes it in with his own experiences of hard-scrabble sustainability and quiet worship in the fields.

He writes about his gardening experience of "holy listening." And he lays forth a "theology of place." Deffenbaugh makes a faith-and-health case without ever really talking about faith and health. For him, ecology and theology are as interwoven as our bodies and spirits. I recommend this book if you are looking to make sense of our natural world and God. Deffenbaugh provides a road map for developing one's own theology around these issues.
