God is reconciling all things in heaven and on earth. But we are alienated from the land that sustains us. Our ecosystems are increasingly damaged, and human bodies are likewise degraded. Many of our current industrialized practices are both unhealthy for our bodies and unsustainable for the planet. 

Agriculturalist Fred Bahnson and theologian Norman Wirzba declare that in Christ, God reconciles all bodies into a peaceful, life-promoting relationship with one another. We are necessarily interdependent with plants and animals, land and sea, heaven and earth. The good news is that redemption is cosmic, with implications for agriculture and ecology, from farm to dinner table.
