This sensitive and eloquent study by four Christian biologists addresses the ecological crises we face at the turn of the millennium: population explosion, rain forests stripped bare, destruction of animal habitats, the death of entire species, depletion of the ozone layer, global warming. In the light of Scripture and the presence of God, we can face these crises with hope. More than an investigation of the environmental crisis, this book brings Scripture into fruitful dialogue with current scientific findings and commitments. What emerges is a clarion call to a biblically informed individual and corporate response to our creation.

"Preeeeep." The sound of the peepers, tiny frogs an inch or two long, penetrated the dusk. Beneath the jack pines at the edge of a small pond in the northern Michigan woods, the males were calling their mates. A professor and a group of ecology students sat speechless as closer and closer, louder and louder, more and more peepers joined in chorus.There was just light enough to see them, crawling up a bracken fern to find a singing perch, filling their throats with air like tiny balloons about to burst and then giving forth at close range an ear-splitting 'preeeeep.; . . . Now we were immersed in the peepers' lives, not ours. And when the concert ended and the peepers had gone away, we laughed together for the sheer joy and power of life displayed for a moment in the grand efforts of one tiny creature to be fruitful and multiply."Combining compelling stories with both biblical and scientific investigation,Redeeming Creationaddresses the ecological crisis we face today.population explosionrain forests stripped baredestruction of animal habitatthe death of entire speciesdepletion of the ozone layerglobal warmingThe authors, four biologists and teachers, believe that we can face these dilemmas with hope. Moving beyond a mere survey of the planet's ills, they bring Scripture into fruitful dialogue with current scientific findings and commitments. They both inspire and inform our individual and corporate response to God's creation.
