Modern Catholic Voices on Going Forward to the Land
Is a return to the land utopian folly or outdated futility? Or is it rather the sine quo non for a Catholic Renaissance in every aspect of our temporal, intellectual, cultural and religious lives?
The Rural Solution features five modern Catholic perspectives on religion and rural life:
-Ruralism vs. Urbanism by Bishop Richard N. Williamson
-Distributism: Economics as if People Mattered and The Why and How of a Parallel Economy by Dr. Peter Chojnowski
-Two Pigs and a Cow by Christopher McCann (on urban-industrial alienation and the wholeness of agricultural labor)
-The Economics of the Catholic Family by Dr. Walter John Marx
-The Better Life by Willis D. Nutting.
These authors are unanimous in declaring that a return to the land is the Catholic solution: one that is desirable, practical and urgently needed. It is neither nostalgia nor daydreaming, but a necessary first step.
