About the Author

Sally Dyck is bishop of the Minnesota Conference of The United Methodist Church. She received theological training from Boston University School of Theology (M. Div., 1978), University of Geneva/World Council of Churches (graduate certificate, 1978), and United Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio (D. Min., Black Church Studies, 1989). Her upbringing in a Mennonite home instilled in her the understanding that personal piety is inextricably woven to peace and justice advocacy. She has been married to the Rev. Kenneth Ehrman, a United Methodist elder, since 1976. The two have traveled the globe together by plane, bicycle, and on foot.

By Bennett D. Poage on February 24, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bishop Dyke articulately and convincingly opens up, and invites readers to engage with, the four hopes in the title; Earth, Faith, Science and the Message of Jesus. Moreover, she gives us renewed hope for the institutional church and it's ability to meet young intelligent inquirers on their own own ground. A Hopeful Earth is a solid, well written, and honest book that presents the message of Jesus without window dressing. Just, as one can imagine, it was presented 2,000 years ago.

Interesting perspective on the environment from a Methodist Bishop and a science teacher. Worthwhile reading. Most denominations avoid the topic completely.

What a great book to provide accurate, evidence-based information about the environment and what poor decisions are doing to our planet. The book is well written, easy to read and addresses a wide range of issues in a concise way. I think this book would be a great tool for discussion groups - both youth and adult, who want to be better informed, and want information from a faith journey perspective. I came away from this book informed about environmental issues and with a sense of responsibility and motivation to do something about it.

Loaned this out before reading it. Our church unit is suppose to read five selected catagory books each year and someone in our unit needed this one - so I will use it for next season. I imagine it is good.

As a science teacher and a person of faith, I feel compelled to change some habits after reading this. It is a wake up call for us to be better stewards of this planet.
