Publisher's Summary

Sandra L. Richter cares about the Bible. She also cares about the environment.

Using her expertise in ancient Israelite society and economy as well as in biblical theology, Richter walks listeners through passages familiar and not-so-familiar, showing how significant environmental theology is in the Bible's witness. She then calls Christians to apply that message to today's environmental concerns. Richter is a master Bible scholar. Each chapter in this timely book draws out a biblical mandate about care for the land, for domestic and wild animals, for people at the margins, and more. She is also a master storyteller. Well informed on the most significant challenges to present-day environmental stewardship, Richter includes case studies connecting modern day examples and scripture. Though current political values may tempt listeners to separate or even polarize Christian faith and ecological concerns, Richter urges us to be driven by God's values instead.

A Must Read for Committed Christians

This wonderfully written and beautifully spoken book is a must read/listen for both liberal and conservative Christians alike. U.S. reformed Christians in particular will find the Biblically-fact-based subject matter particularly enlightening especially in these devise times.

As a lifelong Christian, I have always appreciated God‘s beautiful creation and understood the scriptural mandate to be a good steward of it. This short book explains that concept in great yet simple detail and will at the very least enlighten and inform the reader. For some, this scriptural commentary on giving glory to God in all that we say and do will be life changing.

Christian perspective

I liked the clear connection between Christian and environmentalism.
Many biblical issues were discussed with modern examples.
If you are not sure about practicing biblical environmentalism read this book.
