Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Environmentalists have pleaded with Christian leaders to take up the challenge of caring for the environment. How should Christians respond to the environmental crisis? What does the Bible have to say about creation care and the responsibility of Christians? Edward Brown offers a biblical framework for creation care as well as practical steps that ordinary Christians can take to exercise good ecological stewardship. As a pioneering leader of the evangelical creation care movement, Brown provides a new model for environmental missions, in which Christian organizations respond to ecological crises in ways that transform both the people and the land that sustains them. This book is filled with ideas that students, churches, mission agencies and all concerned Christians can implement at home and around the world.

Review:

"A self-described 'reluctant environmentalist,' Brown offers fellow evangelical Christians a cogent, theologically nuanced argument for creation care. Why did God create this planet? What responsibility do Christians have to preserve it and ensure justice for a growing population? What sacrifices should they be prepared to make to carry out God's wishes? As someone who has lived in Pakistan and worked with international missionary agencies, Brown is also able to offer a valuable global perspective on this issue at a time when many American Christians are examining the environment only from a privileged or sheltered position. Well-written and persuasive, Brown's book takes a hard look at the current crisis, but also expresses optimism that Christians can and will change the world." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
