Review: by Prof. Ellen Davis - August 2009
A.R. Kearns Professor of Bible and Practical Theology, Duke Divinity School

Charles Pettee is a superb musician and a gifted lyricist, and possibly his rarest gift is the ability to render biblical texts – psalms and stories – into American musical idioms, folk and bluegrass. He is a powerful interpreter of Scripture in his own right, and his music has greatly strengthened my agrarian readings of the Bible. With strong conviction and sometimes wry humor, he delivers a message about the incomparable value of healthy land, a message that faith communities urgently need to hear and communicate to others.
