Thomas Aquinas once stated that "any error about creation also leads to an error about God." Fortunately there are many in the Christian faith today with an ever-increasing interest in caring for the environment. In this second edition of his highly acclaimed book, Steven Bouma-Prediger provides a compelling treatment for an evangelical theology of creation care. Making the case that an authentic Christian faith requires ecological obedience, Bouma-Prediger argues that true Christianity acknowledges the responsibility and privilege Christians have been given as stewards of the earth. This edition has been substantially revised and updated with the latest scientific and environmental research.
