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.
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.
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.
