Following Jesus is good for the planet. Or should be, at least. This is the radical, yet solidly biblical premise of Blessed Earth. This two-part film series and guidebook experience is a creative and compelling call for Christians to embrace sustainable living out of love for God, neighbor, and all of creation.
In this interactive companion to the Hope for Humanity DVD, Dr. Matthew Sleeth provides personal questions, practical applications, and additional content to help Christ's followers dig deeper into the creation care actions highlighted in Sessions 7-12. The time to act is now. By imitating Jesus and following Him wholeheartedly, the church will become the strongest proponent for 'saving the planet.' And our care, compassion, and joyful generosity will breathe hope into a world longing for redemption.
Matthew Sleeth, MD, is the executive director of Blessed Earth, an educational nonprofit that inspires and equips Christians to become better stewards of the earth. Together with his wife, Nancy, and two children, he helps lead the growing creation care movement. www.blessedearth.org
