    This book is fairly fantastic The author writes a series of essays delving into the Old Testament and its connections to the agrarian writers of today mainly, Wendell Berry Contrary to how some people choose to interpret the injunction in Genesis to rule and subdue Creation, this divine command is not license to misuse the Creation or even to use resources in order to hasten the Lord s return Rather, the Bible is very much a great foundation for an agrarian mindset Fascinating, challenging This book is fairly fantastic The author writes a series of essays delving into the Old Testament and its connections to the agrarian writers of today mainly, Wendell Berry Contrary to how some people choose to interpret the injunction in Genesis to rule and subdue Creation, this divine command is not license to misuse the Creation or even to use resources in order to hasten the Lord s return Rather, the Bible is very much a great foundation for an agrarian mindset Fascinating, challenging, and...
