"Between God and Green makes a number of important contributions to religious and environmental studies and deserves a wide audience, both academic and popular."--Journal of Religion
"The research [Wilkinson's Between God & Green] reflects, her careful analysis of the theological and political differences of evangelical leaders, and her efforts to categorize views held by the evangelicals with whom she had group discussions are commendable...Wilkinson's text is also helpful for scholars, leaders, and members of other Christian denominations and religions who struggle with disparate voices that prevent a fully cohesive approach to major issues." --Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"A compelling and detailed narrative that keeps the reader engaged throughout the work... This may be the most detailed and important book on the subject of evangelical concern over climate change." --Sociology of Religion
"This comprehensive account of evangelical involvement in the climate movement offers a good window on one facet of the global warming movement. Faced with the reality of rapid climate shifts, Creation needs these advocates expanding their efforts!"
--Bill McKibben, author of The Comforting Whirlwind: God, Job, and the Scale of Creation
"Between God & Green is a great story, one where faith breaks free of conventional boundaries and expectations and expresses itself in a profound way on one of the great moral and political challenges of our time, the human threat to the stability of the planet's climate."
--James Gustave Speth, author of The Bridge at the Edge of the World: Capitalism, the Environment, and Crossing from Crisis to Sustainability
"In a world where, all too often, depictions of evangelicals are one-dimensional and simplistic, Wilkinson brings a fresh perspective and extensive research to understanding the complexity of evangelicalism in this wonderfully told story of evangelical climate activism. Concerned to give a complete picture of this important segment of Christian environmentalism in the U.S., she combines discursive analysis of key texts with extensive interviews with key leaders of climate change activism and their critics, as well as everyday church-goers, to paint the best portrait to date of green evangelicals and the challenges they face."
--Laurel Kearns, co-editor of EcoSpirit: Religions and Philosophies for the Earth

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.
