Deffenbaugh calls Christians back to a reverence for place instead of the traditional eschewing of time on earth coupled with a yearning to be with God in heaven. . . . [He] brings ecology down to earth and challenges the Christian community to develop a new spirituality of place. (Spirituality and Practice)
Learning the Language of the Fields would be more than adequate as a book about a Christian view of ecology and environmental stewardship. And heaven knows we need to be reading those kinds of creation-care books. But it is more. As the back cover states, it 'connects ecology with ritual and spirituality with community.' Deffenbaugh writes in gentle, flowing prose even as he argues forcefully that our aggressive agricultural models have been disastrous. It is a very nice book.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who cares about our environment, nature and our own fields and habitat, a responsibility given to us by God. We need to share this story with others as we face the very real challenge of "Climate Change". Enjoy!
