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.

Editorial Reviews

"The authors have done a credible job of presenting sound science and sound biblical theology side by side. As perhaps was intended by its editors . . . Keeping God's Earth would make a useful introduction for students or other audiences looking for a scholarly but accessibly overview."

"The book is well produced and, with good documentation, quality footnotes, suggestions for further reading and subject and scripture references, excellent value for money."
"The book fills a space for those looking for an ethical foundation for creation care that takes seriously both the science and the Bible. The book aims to move care for God's creation into the center of American evangelical life. It is a wake-up call to action."
"A serious book for those interested in the issue of climate change. . . A vital read."
