Christians, the Care of Creation, and Global Climate Change is a wake-up call for Christians and others. It is a cogent and persuasive call to love God and our neighbors by caring for creation--especially in light of the dramatic climate changes occurring before our eyes. This book is not the final word on the subject, but it is a sincere invitation to examine the scientific evidence for global warming and to respond with individual and collective faithful actions. CONTRIBUTORS: Douglas Allen, Jeffrey K. Greenberg, P. J. Hill, Sir John T. Houghton, A. Duane Litfin, Ben Lowe, Vincent E. Morris, L. Kristen Page, Lindy Scott, Noah J. Toly

Book Description Wipf Stock Publishers, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Christians, the Care of Creation, and Global Climate Change is a wake-up call for Christians and others. It is a cogent and persuasive call to love God and our neighbors by caring for creation--especially in light of the dramatic climate changes occurring before our eyes. This book is not the final word on the subject, but it is a sincere invitation to examine the scientific evidence for global warming and to respond with individual and collective faithful actions. CONTRIBUTORS: Douglas Allen, Jeffrey K. Greenberg, P. J. Hill, Sir John T. Houghton, A. Duane Litfin, Ben Lowe, Vincent E. Morris, L. Kristen Page, Lindy Scott, Noah J. Toly This diverse set of presentations is both an excellent primer on climate change and a fascinating case study that describes what the Wheaton College community is doing to respond to the serious environmental challenges we face. Christians have a responsibility before God to serve and protect his creation. This book is a wake up call that should spur us to do just that. --Ryan Hobert, Deputy Director, Climate Change, United Nations Foundation Climate change is one of the more contentious issues addressed by policy makers, scientists and pundits today. With so much information on both sides of the debate, it is hard for the average citizen to know what to do. In this short, very readable book, the authors have cut through much of the debate and presented from the Christian perspective what we know about climate change, where the issues still remain and what--when faced with remaining uncertainty--we as Christians should do to respond prayerfully and faithfully to issues of creation care. The thoughtful and prayerful approach taken by our Christian brothers and sisters at Wheaton stands as an example for us all to emulate. --Ben L. Campbell, Program Director, Faith-based Initiative, Conservation International This book and the two Wheaton conferences that gave rise to it--one organized by students, the other by the Administration--are further signs that Christians are waking up to the profound challenge of climate change, and the opportunities it presents to create a better world. When both college administrations and students start to lead, the rest of the Christian community will not be far behind. An important book for understanding this growing movement for positive change. --Jim Ball, President of the Evangelical Environment Network One of the best pieces of news in recent years has been the growing understanding in Christian communities that global warming is an ugly blasphemy. For those of us committed to the Gospel message, global warming threatens the poorest people around the world, the rest of God s creation, and the very future we are asked to steward. This book is a milestone in the new process of understanding--and acting on--this threat. --Bill McKibben, author of The Comforting Whirlwind: God, Job, and the Scale of Creation Wheaton has preformed a great service to evangelicals by spotlighting our responsibility to steward God s wonderful creation. This collection of papers identifies--with neither sugarcoating nor hysteria--the staggering consequences of poor environmental stewardship. The blend of scientific, social, economic, theological, and human perspectives is honest, riveting, and challenging. This collection will convict you of our believers responsibility for Creation Care; it will challenge you with ways to alter your consumption behaviors. --Paul Corts, President of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities LINDY SCOTT is currently Professor of Spanish and Latin American Studies at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington.
