Virtues of Renewal

Jeffrey Bilbro

University Press of Kentucky

Communities characterized by the seven virtues that title the chapters of this book would inhabit their places in more sustainable, healthy ways than those marked by the fragmented, extractive mode characteristic of industrial cultures. Such virtuous communities would not provide a quick fix for the injustices and destruction of our present industrial economy, nor would they magically evade death and loss. Nevertheless, members of sustaining communities hold death in place, practice virtues of renewal, and lovingly give of themselves to others.
