A Theology of Eatin’?

do you have one?  have you thought much about the a theology of food and ecology?

watch this hour long video with Duke Professor Norman Wirzba and feel free to let me know what you think.  My guess, like me, you haven’t really thought much about food as it relates to theology or the Christian’s faith life and practice.  Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t?  What say you?


As a research professor of theology, ecology, and rural life at the Duke Divinity School, Wirzba studies the intersection of God, food and farming. In The Gift of Creation Images from Scripture and Earth, Wirzba collaborated with photographer Thomas Barnes to publish a collection of photographs and essays exploring the relationship between the Bible and the earth. Raised on a farm in Canada, Wirzba is the author of “The Paradise of God: Renewing Religion in an Ecological Age” and “Living the Sabbath: Discovering the Rhythms of Rest and Delight (The Christian Practice of Everyday Life).” This semester he is teaching the course “Caring for Creation.”
