Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Christian youth of America are making their mark in a Genesis- and Jesus-based commitment to creation conservation. Ben Lowe speaks for them and is out to add to their ranks. His witness and invitation seethe with hope and energy. Listen to him. Join him." (Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, and translator of The Message)

"This is the book we need. No set of challenges calls more directly to people of faith than these environmental cataclysms--the de-creation we are now engaged in. Here's strong evidence of both the good thinking and great energy needed to set things right." (Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and The End of Nature)

"Ben writes with a refreshingly youthful and transparent style that is at times penetrating and disturbing, and at other times light and casual. The book is a good read for the Metro--it doesn't require reading in a single setting!" (Paul Corts, president, Council for Christian Colleges and Universities)

"Ben Lowe writes with a fresh voice about an issue that affects each of us deeply. Pick up this book and join the green revolution today!" (Will Samson, coauthor of Justice in the Burbs)

"A new generation of younger evangelicals is leading the way in showing us how to be mindful of our stewardship for the world in which we live, not as a substitute for biblical faith but as a faithful expression of it. Ben Lowe's book helps us do just that. I recommend it to all Christians everywhere." (Timothy George, dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, and senior editor, Christianity Today)

"Ben Lowe has been an outstanding pioneer of practical caring for creation. His generation is probably the one that most urgently needs to understand and live by the passionate convictions that he has expressed so eloquently in these pages. If they do we may enter a season of hope. If they don't, we are probably, most literally, cooked." (Peter Harris, founder, A Rocha)

"Green Revolution is more than a great book. It's a powerfully convincing invitation to join a fresh movement of God. Thanks, Ben Lowe, for your faithful creation witness!" (Jonathan Merritt, faith and culture writer, and national spokesperson, Southern Baptist Environment and Climate Initiative)

"Ben Lowe has done us all a favor: he has assembled some of the most notable teachers in the world to mentor us on the greatest of coming revolutions. This planet is our great gift from God, but it is also our sobering responsibility to renew for the poor and the coming generations. In these pages you will find the intellectual and practical path forward. This book will develop your strategy and your faith." (Joel C. Hunter, senior pastor, Northland, A Church Distributed, Florida)

"I am grateful for Ben Lowe's book. Green Revolution is an invitation, not just to believe that another world is possible, but to begin enacting it now." (from the foreword by Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution, Jesus for President and Becoming the Answer to Our Prayers)

"I commend this book to all college students and concerned citizens of God's earth. Lowe gets it right! Biblical environmental stewardship is about the transformation of hearts and minds, and about incarnational living on earth. The book's case studies and stories illuminate and provide a useful framework to help Christians relearn what it means to love God, neighbor and creation." (Susan Drake Emmerich, CEO, Emmerich Environmental Consulting, and coproducer, When Heaven Meets Earth: Faith, Environment and the Chesapeake Bay)

"Ben Lowe makes a compelling case for the role of colleges and universities in preparing tomorrow's creation care servant leaders. This book is must-reading for those faculty, students and institutional leaders who will be called to teach and model new ways of thinking and living if we are to heal our planet." (Dr. Ed Johnson, president, Au Sable Institute)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It could have been my fault for not looking into this book more before I ordered it, but it was not what I expected. Lowe, a Christian college graduate, does a good job of describing many of the experiences he has seen and gone through firsthand pertaining to the environment. If you are interested in eventually making big waves as a Christian environmentalist this book is for you. Lowe describes how best to go about being that change in society, to the point where it gets almost redundant. I felt as if many chapters ended up droning on about either himself or the many Christian colleges making a difference. I understand they are/have the ability to be the young leaders of but there is plenty of other great institutions. To be fair, he does bring a few other colleges and instiutions up but he continually sticks with Christian based ones.

If you, like me, are more looking for a book that helps guide young men and women of faith to be able to really apply eco-friendly practices in their dorm, apt, house, etc. then this book is not for you.

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book! It meets you where you are no matter what you think or where you are in your environmental stance. It is strong and challenging, yet not pushy. Somehow Lowe is able to include personal stories, scientific facts, lofty visions, as well as practical ideas, and is able to support it with sound biblical theology. I would highly recommend this book!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Matthew J. Soerens on February 26, 2009
Format: Paperback
Ben Lowe's Green Revolution is an important and timely reminder of the mandate to care for God's creation. The God who reconciles us to Himself through Christ is also reconciling all things, including the natural environment that He has created, and Lowe reminds us that we have the privilege and the responsibility to be a part of that reconciliatory work. With stories and case studies that drive the point home, Lowe provides lucid, theologically sound insight into our present situation and practical ideas for moving forward. All that, and it's an enjoyable, compelling read. I highly recommend it.

This book was great and very helpful. I especially enjoyed the chapter on molehills. Very good ideas on understanding the issues that come up in working with people on a volunteer basis.

By Paul A. Spangler on April 5, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is a very good book for those interested in even more motivation to care for God's creation. It has many great examples from the author's journey as an up and coming leader in this movement for American Christians. I have hope that more will pick this up and implement best practices from other organizations mentioned in the book in their own settings to create change.
