This Is My Father's World critically engages contemporary environmental ethics and provides Christians with a theological foundation for appropriately relating to the world they call God's creation--a creation ethic. It is refreshingly and thoroughly scriptural. However, what the Bible says may shock people with conservative or liberal presuppositions already in mind. This book is a challenge to both sides of the debate.

About the Author:

Gale Heide grew up on a farm/ranch in Montana, giving him insight into the beautiful and sometimes forceful movements of God in creation. He also learned a great deal during the three years he worked for the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Montana. These insights have been honed through his education in theology and ethics at Western Conservative Baptist Seminary (MDiv), Duke University (ThM), and Marquette University (PhD). He is currently Academic Dean and Professor of Theology and Biblical Languages at Montana Bible College.

Book Description Wipf Stock Publishers, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This Is My Father s World critically engages contemporary environmental ethics and provides Christians with a theological foundation for appropriately relating to the world they call God s creation--a creation ethic. It is refreshingly and thoroughly scriptural. However, what the Bible says may shock people with conservative or liberal presuppositions already in mind. This book is a challenge to both sides of the debate. The fullness of all the earth IS His glory! (Isaiah 6:3). With warmth, wit, and biblical wisdom, Gale presses the issues of God s profound love for that which He has made. Gale realizes that Christians have more at stake than anyone in environmental issues, since we see creation as an expression of the glory of our creator. --Ronald B. Allen, Senior Professor of Biblical Exposition, Dallas Theological Seminary Gale Heide demonstrates, with remarkable clarity, that the care and love of creation are a central part of what it means to be a new creature in Christ. But this book is no doctrinaire tract for a barely baptized Christian environmentalism. Heide shows with gentle insight the weakness in the foundation of all mere environmentalisms . . . . God s creation--sometimes splendid, sometimes gritty--breaks through often in the book. Like much of the Bible, this book is written by one who knows intimately the behavior of animals, the glory of night skies, and the smell of the wind across open range. It is earthy, accessible, and wise. --Loren Wilkinson, Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies and Philosophy, Regent College, and editor of Earthkeeping: Christian Stewardship of Natural Resources Gale Heide grew up on a farm/ranch in Montana, giving him insight into the beautiful and sometimes forceful movements of God in creation. He also learned a great deal during the three years he worked for the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Montana.
