For the Beauty of the Earth provides the most thorough evangelical treatment available on a theology of creation care. Arguing that authentic Christian faith requires ecological obedience, Steven Bouma-Prediger urges Christians to acknowledge their responsibility and privilege as stewards of the earth. The second edition has been substantially revised and updated with the latest scientific and environmental research.Praise for the first edition"This book is both straightforward and subversive, a clarion call to extend the witness of our faith to the glory of all creation. You may pick it up casually, but you will put it down committed to doing something about these most urgent of all problems."--Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature"An important book. Steven Bouma-Prediger combines theological depth with ecological savvy to issue a profound call to environmental discipleship. He makes his case in a way that both informs and inspires!"--Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary"Bouma-Prediger has succeeded in directing onto his topic useful information drawn from scientific as well as biblical and theological authorities. Yet he effectively uses lists, charts, and vivid examples to make this learned book thoroughly accessible. . . . An excellent book."--W. Sibley Towner, Interpretation"In a creative fashion, [Bouma-Prediger] calls attention to the world of nature that surrounds us as well as the dangers inherent in present practices that need the attention of all Christians. . . . [This book] is, without question, scientifically and theologically sound."--H. Newton Malony, Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith"Perhaps the most insightful evangelical work published on the topic of environmentalism, Bouma-Prediger's book is both academically substantial yet very readable. . . . This is an important book that Christians who are serious about discipleship should read."--Mark Liederbach, Faith & Mission"A tour de force. . . . For the Beauty of the Earth covers many bases in an attractive way not only for undergraduates but also church members wondering why faithful discipleship requires ecological obedience."--Robert B. Kruschwitz, Perspectives in Religious Studies
