Robert C. Cheeks

St. Augustine(see Sermons on the Psalms) explicated the tension between the autonomous self and the love of God, both of which are centered in the soul.
If man is moving toward God within this tension, perhaps that movement incorporates not only the love of God, but the love of his creation as well.
I think this wisdom is at the center of Berry's work, and while the "back to the land movement" was essentially a theophanic event, to few of the participants understood that.

I was going to cross-post what I wrote over at The American Scene, but Mr. Cheeks put it far more succinctly and winsomely.
