Overview

A compelling and persuasive outline for the Catholic church's support of rural living is presented in this collection of contemporary writings on why city-dwelling Catholics should settle and work in the country. Discussions of the practice of retreat accompany arguments of the principles of faith, including Biblical teachings on the theological dimensions of Jesus Christ's upbringing in Nazareth, economic arguments that city life and jobs are often tied to capitalist principles, and ecological and conservationist positions that a Christian should maintain a balanced relationship with the earth.
