A compellingly honest look at what the Bible really says about environmental stewardship
Did God instruct the human race to be His caretakers over nature? If so, is environmental exploitation disobedience to God? Is it true, as many critics claim, that Christianity is the root cause of today's environmental problems--or are all religions and cultures responsible? How should the church respond?
Should Christians Be Environmentalists? systematically tackles these tough questions and more by exploring what the Bible says about the environment and our stewardship of creation. Looking at three dimensions of environmentalism as a movement, a Bible-based theology of nature, and the role the church has in environmental ethics, Dan Story examines each through a theological, apologetic, and practical lens.
Writing with easy-to-understand, nontechnical language, the author provides a powerful rebuttal to critics who claim Christianity is anti-environmental. He urges Christians--especially high school and college students--to embrace the tremendous evangelistic opportunities that exist in the environment debate.
In a time when Christians are becoming increasingly aware of the seriousness of today's environmental and ecological
problems and want the church to become more informed and engaged in confronting these issues, this book is the perfect introduction to this timely topic.
Dan Story (BA, San Diego Bible College; MA, Simon Greenleaf University) is the author of Christianity on the Offense as well as Defending Your Faith, which has been commended by Elliot Miller, editor in chief of Christian Research Journal, as the most important apologetics book for lay readers since Josh McDowell's Evidence That Demands a Verdict.
