Editorial Reviews

'...a great read on how individual Christians and their families can respond to God’s call for environmental stewardship.' -- '...a great read on how individual Christians and their families can respond to God’s call for environmental stewardship.'
'...remarkable: elegantly written, theologically and scientifically acute, and not least, beautifully typeset and bound.... Serve God, Save the Planet is about much more than environmental activism.... [W]hat I took away from Sleeth's book had less to do with the specifics of energy use and recycling than the hope that there is a better way to live as families: that it is possible to detoxify our technologized and hypermediated homes, and that our children will thank us for it.... Sleeth...is the perfect missionary for the environmental cause;....he recognizes, in time-honored evangelical style, that the most important battleground for any social change is the human heart....' -- '...remarkable: elegantly written, theologically and scientifically acute, and not least, beautifully typeset and bound....
