Serving God, Saving the Planet is a study that will broaden the conversation with a focus on the dangers of materialism, workaholism, and spiritual bankruptcy---as well as God's endless invitations for us to enjoy what he has created. This twelve-session study provides simple, everyday ways to focus on stewardship and sustainability according to Scripture. In the first six sessions, Dr. Matthew Sleeth explores his personal salvation experience and desire to follow Jesus in the context of the love story God tells in Genesis. Dr. Sleeth guides readers through each of the created elements, reminding them of the God-given commission to 'tend and protect the planet.' In the final six sessions, Dr. Sleeth examines how God's original command to 'tend and protect the planet' extends into the actions and activities of every Christian's everyday lives. Designed for use with the video.
