From our reading, it seems as though Wendell Berry's explicit references to religion are as infrequent as the religious spirit of his writings is pervasive and unmistakable (Jayber Crow is the chief exception to this rule). There is a very short distance indeed between the consistent themes of his work-reverence for creation and especially for inimitable human persons and their communities-and religious and theological truths. The contributors to this collection of essays include theologians, pastors and writers Elizabeth and Fred Bahnson, Kyle Childress, Richard Church, Ellen Davis, Stanley Hauerwas, D. Brent Laytham, Philip A. Muntzel, Charles R. Pinches, Brian Volck, Scott Williams, and Norman Wirzba, and their work joins a growing secondary literature on Berry found in Wendell Berry and the Cultivation of Life and Wendell Berry: Life and Work. 272 pp
