Why Urban Christians Need Wendell Berry

posted on October 26, 2012

For Christianity Today, Jake Meador considers the importance of Wendell Berry, an agrarian farmer and writer, for urban evangelicals. While Berry’s writings have not typically been seen as relevant for evangelicals living in cities, Meador has found Berry’s teachings to inform his understanding of urban Christian life. Meador writes, “The movement among evangelicals to revitalize urban areas with the Gospel will be successful to the extent that evangelicals themselves are enchanted by the God of that gospel and the world he has given us to both steward and enjoy. And for learning to become enchanted, I haven’t found a more helpful teacher than Wendell Berry.”
