Cherishing the Earth

Margot R HodsonMartin Hodson

$13.99

Paperback

Cherishing the Earth conveys the integrated wisdom of a scientist and a pastor who have discovered that sustainable living requires spiritual as well as technological resources. Every system on Earth has been affected by human actions. We have plundered its mineral resources and polluted the land, the atmosphere, and the water. We urgently need to learn how to care for God's creation.

Martin and Margot Hodson take us on a journey of hope and bring practical enthusiasm for a better way of living. Drawing on stories of people who have found positive ways to respond, they show how understanding God's concern for his whole creation can inspire us toward a more biblical lifestyle. They call for Christians and others to become more involved in communities and seek change at national and international level. Far from being a distraction from living a Christian life, this sustainable lifestyle is a key to a life lived with Jesus at the centre.

Ecological problems - drought, global warming, pollution, resources - are headline news. Green movements tend to stress pessimistic outcomes. Anxiety is reasonable, but the Christian response should draw upon the concern of God for his creation. Christians are starting to contribute to the debate, and have a vital specific insight: the Christian message of hope. The Hodsons show how Christians can make a contribution to community life and take the lead in raising awareness, developing recycling, reducing waste and energy use, and encouraging local church-based environmental initiatives.
