It's obviously machine scanned with so many egregious errors that it's difficult to read.

Format: Paperback
Contrary to some of the other reviewers who felt this book was non-sensical drival, or too little, too late, etc., I thought this was a very good book. Instead of being so down on the content, I viewed it as good advice for starting out. This book offered practical advice for getting Christian churches involved in saving "God's green earth", and it gave practical advice for starting church programs that help save the environment. If every single living person in the world practiced what this book said, then our world and our environment would be a much better and safer place. You can't just dive off into radical environmentalism without having the funds and the knowledge. Besides, history has proven that anytime a person gets radical about any subject, it ends up doing more harm than good. The idea is to get Christians interested in being good stewards of God's precious creation rather than worrying about being politically correct or incorrect. For most people, you have to start small and grow. Most people don't have the "Big Bucks" that it takes to lobby, to run out and install solar energy in their homes, to go completely green over-night. It takes time and it takes money. I enjoyed this book and I believe it is a start and a change in the right direction. I wish more churches would take this attitude. Besides, if more people would get out and volunteer in established environmental programs, just think about all that could be accomplished. I really liked this book and I would rate in a strong 4.5.

Format: Paperback
I have never read a book quite like this one. I expected a quasi-Christian tree hugging manifesto, but instead got a balanced biblical view of environmental stewardship. In a time in which environmentalism is connected with a liberal political agenda, the author does a terrific job of calling the church back to an appreciation of God's world. Two of his personal stories (finding Jesus in the eyes of a deer and the Holy Spirit in a canyon wind) could have been omitted, but the premise of the book is still challenging. The environment is not a political issue, and Christian conservatives can be environmentalists, too.

The author correctly asserts that Christians can reach people with the Gospel by being involved in environmental causes. One recent example is Ted Turner's softening toward the Christian faith after realizing how the Lutheran and Methodist churches are fighting malaria in Africa; the man who once called Christianity "a religion for losers" regrets the remarks he has made in the past because of this practical demonstration of God's love.

Format: Paperback
This is a very simple, readable approach to environmental issues in the world today and necessary response of the body of Christ in the church to such issues. If it is read as a good introduction to the issues and a book to create awareness, it will be seen as insightful and helpful. If you are looking for an in-depth analysis of environmental concerns, you will be disappointed, but i think the book does a good job of encouraging the Christian church to wake up and recognize the responsibility we have to look deeper and be a part of restoring the incredible gift of creation God has given. The practical tips in the back are a good way to begin small lifestyle changes at an individual and corporate level and hopefully inspire the reader to dig deeper into the issues. There has been far too little teaching in the church about the state of the environment and too much conflict with those outside the church, and it is nice to see a leader taking a stand and trying to help others along in the process.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A well written missive. Growing up in Christian/Farmer home and while spending nearly 40 years in the environmental industry, I've ALWAYS believed that it has always been mankind's responsibility to "walk lightly" through the earth...managing the environment responsibly has been a root instinct--because I'm a Christian, of Farmer roots deep in the soil of the Midwest, and lastly because of my chosen career path.

Pastor Robinson presents the case for "visible" leadership in the environmental arena by Christians--which is seen by many as a dance among strange bedfellows. This missive presents the case that environmental leadership by the Church should be a natural response and opens channels of communication within the community that have been closed due to mistrust and misunderstanding.

Good book.

Format: Kindle Edition
The Kindle version is a mess. It's obviously machine scanned with so many egregious errors that it's difficult to read. The Kindle version is not worth paying money for.

This book is a good for Christians who are unaware of the important Christian teaching about care for the environment and/or who think environmentalism is a leftist political agenda. Robinson teaches an important lesson about separating the political rhetoric from the message of Scripture regarding Christian environmental consciousness. So for some Christian readers this is an important contribution. But beyond that, it is weak in substance.
