Between God & Green: How Evangelicals Are Cultivating a Middle Ground on Climate ChangeKatherine K. Wilkinson has made a valuable contribution to the study of American evangelism and the environmental movement. The book documents the slow evolution of the evangelical viewpoint on the climate change. If you are the type of reader that enjoys books that connect events with personalities, this book will bring you a good measure of satisfaction. Between God & Green, covers a time span from the 1800s to 2006. I was pleased that Wilkinson illuminated with greater depth the period of 1970-2006. She pointed out the process of developing an evangelical Eco-theology.
Most people know from the evening news the outcome of some of the behind the scene shenanigans of the evangelical environmental movement. In chapters three and four, there is enough drama from these activities to keep the readers turning the pages. The polemics between the evangelical environmental elites and their opponents on the evangelical right will leave the reader wondering if the creation care alliance has lost its ability to champion ecological cause. If you wonder, what affects the disputes of these two camps have on the people in the pews; read chapter five. Wilkinson's research painted a concise picture of their thoughts on Christian environmentalism.
Although, I wanted to read more about evangelical positions on environmental justice issues and the source of their funding, this is a good book. Between God & Green, is one of the more balanced books on what has happen to Christian evangelists' stewardship of God's creation. I recommend you read this book.

Very good read. Open, non-judgmental view of Evangelicals and the subtle shift in their view toward climate change and other environmental issues.

I was expecting a realistic analysis of Evangelical involvement in the green movement. Sadly the movement is week at best and the claims the author made about Evangelical leadership rang hollow. I'm part of a faith-centered environmental justice organization and simply don't see Evangelicals out front in the way this book would have you believe.

*Between God and Green* is an important resource for anyone -- scholar or otherwise -- who is interested in how evangelicals are engaging with climate change. With engaging prose, and precise and thorough research, Wilkinson's book provides a uniquely comprehensive look at the evangelical 'climate care' movement.
