Publisher's Description

Let s move beyond debilitating skepticism and work toward a biblical environmental concern.


Overview


Humans are going to spend eternity on earth. The vision given to John in the book of Revelation ends with heaven coming to earth, and earth being renewed and restored as a dwelling place for humans who are no longer remotely disconnected from their God (Revelation 21 22).


While Christians may be ready to leave this world to fly away into heaven, this study examines the fact that we are born to live on earth (Genesis 1) and find our identity wandering this earth (Psalms 104). We are terrestrial (Job 38 39), and that has practical implications for how we treat our planet.
