About-

"This book . . . is an invitation to all Christians to begin constructing a food ethics; to the academic Christian ethicist, it presents an opportunity to join a discussion on a topic relevant in so many ways to the life of every American; to the Christian for whom the spark of the divine is detectable in the everyday life, it is a chance to begin making ethical sense out of something done every day for the entirety of one's natural life-participating in agriculture."
-from the Introduction

In Sustainable Agriculture, Mark Graham joins the vibrant, substantive discussion about the moral issues in American agriculture by revealing what is going on in current agricultural practices and analyzing them in light of morality and sustainability.

Graham's constructive proposal for change is based on a moral vision that identifies a group of core values around which our agricultural system should be developed, including: a) a consistent, safe food supply; b) vital, sustainable communities; and c) personal and environmental health.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Graham's book is religiously important for anyone who eats and ethically important for anyone involved in agriculture. His proposals are articulate and insightful, balanced yet revolutionary, illuminating for the non-specialist, and challenging for policy makers. Readers will be grateful for the way Graham makes gratitude the foundation of a Christian critique of American farming practices. Graham takes the reader on an eye-opening journey to an utterly essential realm of human life that, sadly, has been neglected by mainstream ethics."
