Product Description

Diversity of life. Water resources. Global climate change. Cities and global environmental issues. We all know being a Christian involves ethical responsibility. But what exactly are our environmental obligations?

This unique volume edited by Wheaton College professors Noah J. Toly and Daniel I. Bock, brings scientists with biblical scholars side by side to discuss the question and discern the implications of that question. How does God wish us to tend and care for the earth? What are our responsibilities? What are the consequences of failing to do so?

Here you'll read informed essays from Christian teachers in a variety of fields, ranging from New Testament, Old Testament, Theology and Ethics, to geology, biology, atmospheric physics and environmental science. Their biblical insight combined with scientific expertise will provide a clear understanding of the crucial biblical texts, and key scientific concepts while also juxtaposing the two fields in order to produce a well articulated scientific and biblical theology of our moral responsibility to the earth.
