I Have a Book by Wendell Berry

I have a book by Wendell Berry that collects all the passages in the New Testament where Jesus speaks of peace, love, brotherhood, mercy, fair treatment of the poor, and forgiveness. I believe Mr. Berry did this in disgust with the folks who twist and misinterpret the Bible and use Christianity to justify their own un-Godly pursuits.

It is an important book, and I cherish it. Here is a link, if you are interested in reading it. It is a small, but powerful, book.

It comforts me, in these times, that there are still some true elders worth looking to for guidance. When Mr. Vonnegut died, I felt very lucky that the world still contained Wendell Berry.
