Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ben Lowe offers a practical (and Biblical!) how-to guide for weaving creation care into your church or campus ministry. It is full of tangible examples and real-life stories about how to catalyze the next generation's interest in nurturing the environment." (Craig Detweiler, Outreach, March/April 2010)

"Green Revolution is a book with a vision of a better world realized not with great wealth, ambition, or resources, but with the possibilities, potential and power of empathy, compassion, and faith in action." (P.J. Ruschmann, Catholic Library World, June 2010)

"Lowe has written a book that provides motivation and resources for those who want to get involved in environmental stewardship." (Marianne Peters, The Covenant Companion, August 2009)

"Lowe uses Scripture to make a compelling case that God's mission to restore shalom extends to the natural world, and that is is our privelge and responsibility to participate in that mission." (John Pattison, Relevant Magazine, May/June 2009)

"Lowe's voice is original and worth hearing. Green Revolution is part ecological, theological, and political primer, part road warrior for the planet memoir, and part how-to book. Although likely to resonate best with teens and twenty-somethings, there is something here for people of every age. Pastors especially would benefit from reading this fresh, transparent, and evangelically orthodox account written by a member of the generation that is often not sitting in their pews. Ben Lowe offers a holisitic vision for creation care, one that does not place this task above other aspects of the Gospel, but rightly includes it in the work of bringing God's shalom to all the earth." (John Murdock, DeepGreenConversation (deepgreenconversation.org), April 8, 2009)

"I have thoroughly enjoyed this little book. In fact I think that it is a great book for all Christians who are interested in creation care to read. I found Green Revolution to be a well researched and informative book." (Christine Sine, Godspace (godspace.wordpress.com), March 24, 2009)

"This is a book that's been needed for a LONG time! This book is inspirational, informative, and even occasionally witty in its call to action. Every Christian college student (and those who aren't in college as well!) should read this book, then go outside and DO something about the environment." (Christy P., Book Bargains and Previews (bookbargainsandpreviews.com), March 2009)

"Some readers may not be interested in reading a book on the environment. These readers are in luck. Lowe's book isn't just an environmental work because Lowe extensively explores the larger kingdom issues inseparably connected to environmental problems. Green Revolution is more than a great book. It's a powerfully convincing invitation to join a fresh movement of God." (Jonathan Merritt, Relevant Magazine, March 2009)

"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)

"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)

"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)

"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 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)

"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 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)

"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)

"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)

"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)

Review

"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."

Even six years later, this book continues to inspire and encourage the students I work with on College campuses across the country. What is clear throughout this book is Ben's love for God and his desire to help others pursue our collective call towards Biblically-based creation care. His attention to environmental ethics is skilled and his discussion of the Christian church's impact on the environmental crisis is hopeful. My suggestion, read it for yourself!

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!

I strongly recommend this book. I really enjoyed learning about the creation care movement through Ben Lowe's expert knowledge of the subject. This book is specific about pratical ways that the reader can make a positive difference in his or her environment. The narrative is filled with real-life examples and applications of the principles that Ben puts forth. While this book is written from a strong Christian perspective, it should be accessible to anyone who wants to learn about enviornmental issues. I really enjoyed reading it, and I think you will too.

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.

Ben Lowe is putting an end to the idea that environmentalism is just a secular issue. "Green Revolution" gives us a much needed reminder of the Christian responsibility to be active stewards of creation. I recently read this book with a group of college students and found it stimulating, challenging, and motivating. The balance of scientific information and personal narrative make this a very readable book. I highly recommend reading "Green Revolution".

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.
