9781933495262: A Time to Plant

In his moving debut book, America columnist Kyle Kramer recounts the sometimes-gritty story of how he came to experience the joys of real community through a journey of honest reckoning with his own ambitions. For Kramer, this story involves lots of dirt.

In the summer of 1999, Kramer, an earnest and high-achieving private school teacher in Atlanta, decided to forego a promising academic career. Instead, he heeded the voices of the unlikely prophets in his life and purchased a block of hardscrabble land in southern Indiana in order to start a small farm. Tending it back to health--one difficult lesson at a time--Kramer founded Genesis Organic Farm, built a self-sustaining and environmentally friendly home, and began to fully embrace the Benedictine traditions of physical labor, prayer, and hospitality. A Time to Plant is a deeply human story of one man's attempt to make simple living a reality as a spiritual discipline for himself, as a model for his children, and for the good of creation.

About the Author:

Kyle T. Kramer is a writer, farmer, and lay ministry program director. He is the founder of Genesis Organic Farm in Spencer County, Indiana, and is the director of lay degree programs at Saint Meinrad Archabbey, a Benedictine monastery, seminary, and graduate school of theology. Since early 2009, Kramer has been a regular contributor to America magazine. He holds an M.Div. from Emory University and serves as vice president of the Association of Graduate Programs in Ministry and as a regional leader in the National Association for Lay Ministry.

Review:

"An important new voice in Catholic spirituality, a voice that is charming and challenging, filled with youthful energy and the wisdom of the ages." --Luke Timothy Johnson, Author of The Creed: What Christians Believe and Why It Matters

"This book and the story it tells may seem in some sense quiet, mostly confined to a small parcel of land. But it strikes me as a fine and hopeful adventure, one that should give heart to all kinds of people as they try to figure out where they're called to be." --Bill McKibben, Author of Deep Economy

"Unlike many who extol the virtues of sustainable living for political or intellectual reasons, Kramer speaks gently here, making his argument with spiritual candor and a kind of humble, experiential passion that is itself endearing as well as persuasive." --Phyllis Tickle, Author of The Great Emergence

"One comes away feeling it was love that set Kramer's words flowing--love for a place, for his wife and their young children, for good work, and for the mysterious ground from which everything rises." --Scott Russell Sanders, Author of A Private History of Awe
