Place, community, good work, and simple pleasures are but a few of the values that form the bedrock of Berrys thought.

While the notion of reverence is central to Berry, he is not widely known as a religious writer. However, the moral underpinnings of his work are rooted in Christian tradition, articulating the tenet that faith and stewardship of the land are not mutually exclusive. In Wendell Berry and Religion, editors Joel J. Shuman and L. Roger Owens probe the moral and spiritual implications of Berrys work. Chief among them are the notions that the earth is Gods provisional gift to mankind and that studying how we engage material creation reflects important truths.

This collection reveals deep, thoughtful, and provocative conversations within Berrys writings, illuminating the theological inspirations inherent in his work.
