"In an issue of our journal, which highlights the agrarian theme, Thomas Jefferson is the figure who looms most large," says Father Boyd, CSB, editor of The Chesterton Review. "America, as Chesterton once said, is the only nation in the world that is founded on a creed. And it was Jefferson who spelled out that creed in a remarkable constitution. But the agrarian philosophy Jefferson developed represents an equally remarkable achievement."
