Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thomas Aquinas once stated that any error about creation also leads to an error about God. At a time when it seems humans have erred much in their treatment of the planet, this book explores the relationship between Christianity and the natural world in the most thorough evangelical treatment available on a theology of creation care. An esteemed scholar of ecology and theology, Steven Bouma-Prediger claims that authentic Christian faith requires ecological obedience. This substantive yet accessible book argues that true Christianity acknowledges the responsibility and privilege Christians have been given as stewards of the earth. Sure to provoke dialogue, For the Beauty of the Earth will be welcomed by professors and students of theology, ecology, and contemporary culture.

Synopsis:

"Any error about creation also leads to an error about God." -Thomas Aquinas At a time when it seems humans have erred much in their understanding and keeping of the planet, For the Beauty of the Earth explores the relationship between Christianity and the natural world in the most thorough evangelical treatment available on a theology of creation care. "This accessible and engaging, but theologically sophisticated book will rightfully command the attention of parish pastors, church lay leaders, and Christian university students, as well as academic theologians.b& Most important, For the Beauty of the Earth will demonstrate why, on sure and certain biblical grounds, ecological theology and environmental ethics can no longer be the province of only a few theological specialists: why, in these times of global ecological crisis, divine hope for a desecrated earth is the good news that the whole church urgently must embody and then fervently proclaim to the whole world." -H. Paul Santmire, author of The Travail of Nature and Nature Reborn "Take up and read! Behind this cover is crucial content for restoring our's and our churches' life-giving relationship with our Creator and Jesus Christ who holds all things together in sustaining love. Andb&it is engaging, refreshing, and beautifully written." -Calvin B. DeWitt, University of Wisconsin at Madison and director of Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies "This book is both straightforward and subversive, a clarion call to extend the witness of our faith to the glory of all creation. You may pick it up casually, but you will put it down committed to doing something about these most urgent of all problems." -Bill McKibben, author of TheEnd of Nature "This is an important book. Steven Bouma-Prediger combines theological depth with ecological savvy to issue a profound call to environmental discipleship. He makes his case in a way that both informs and inspires!" -Richard J. Mouw, President, Fuller Theological Seminary
