The Care of Creation by
Publication Date: 2000-06-13
A 2003 Templeton Foundation Book of Distinction!"God intends . . . our care of the creation to reflect our love for the Creator," writes John Stott in the foreword to this book. For the theologians and scientists who have contributed to this book, the care of creation is both crucial to human survival and a supreme test of the reality of Christian faith. Their concern reflects not just the selfish interest of the developed North. Nor is it merely a minority enthusiasm, peculiar to bird-watchers and tree-huggers. Rather, it stems from God's creation commands, from Christ's reconciling work, and from what should be a communion of worship between the human and natural worlds. There is now a belated and increasingly evident humility abroad, which recognizes that scientific and political solutions alone are inadequate.The Care of Creation starts from the Evangelical Declaration on the Care of Creation of 1994, which has been endorsed by several hundred church leaders throughout the world. This book is a stimulating and provocative international commentary by leading theologians and environmental practitioners.Contributors include: Richard Bauckham, R. J. Berry, Calvin B.

Environmental Stewardship by
Publication Date: 2006-03-13
The stimulus for the book came from a conference organized by the John Ray Initiative (JRI) to explore 'the Christian approach to the environment'. A clear conclusion was the need to explore and characterize 'stewardship'. This is a concept widely used by environmentalists and one which has clear biblical roots, but it is repeatedly criticized (even condemned) by those who regard any management of nature as either impious or impractical, and by others who believe it is inadequate or misleading. Five key contributions form the core of this book: a context-establishing introduction by R.J. Berry, and papers by Robin Attfield (philosopher), Murray Rae (theologian), Calvin DeWitt (biologist), and Jim Lovelock ('biogeochemist'). They are supported by other relevant material - either classic texts or contributions written or revised especially for this volume.
Managing God's Money by
Publication Date: 2011-03-01
God cares a great deal more about our money than most of us imagine. The sheer enormity of Scripture's teaching on this subject screams for our attention. In fact, Jesus says more about how we are to view and handle money and possessions than about any other topic--including both heaven and hell. In Managing God's Money, Randy Alcorn breaks down exactly what the Bible has to say about how we are to handle our money and posessions in a simple, easy-to-follow format. Filled with Scripture references, Managing God's Moneyis the perfect reference tool for anyone who is interested in gaining a solid biblical understanding of money, possessions, and eternity.
