    Summer 2021 Issue Launch Party

    Bethesda Fountain, Central Park ⁄ New York, NY

    Meet , , , and

    Join us to reconnect and consider Plough’s summer issue – Creatures: The Nature Issue – out in Central Park. We'll gather on the lawn just to the east of Bethesda Fountain, between it and Cherry Hill Fountain. (Click here for Google pin.)  Plough editors Susannah Black and Peter Mommsen will be in conversation with contributors Ian Marcus Corbin, Leah Libresco Sargeant, Phil Klay, and Tim Maendel on the implications of humankind’s relationship to nature. Come for the conversation, stay for refreshments, and sample Tim’s urban honey. 

    About this issue: If nature can be read as a book that reveals the wisdom of its Creator, it also reveals things less lovely than stars and singing birds – a world of desperate competition for survival, mass extinctions, and deadly viruses. Is such a world a convincing argument for the Creator’s goodness? Turns out Christians and skeptics alike have been asking such questions since long before Darwin added a twist. Also, if we moderns forget how to read the book of nature, will we fail to read human nature as well – the rights or purposes our Creator may have endowed us with? What then is there to limit the bounds of technological manipulation of humankind?
