As Long as the Earth Endures
Full Product Description
Part of Christian 'discipleship of the mind' must be to learn to cultivate theological acuity, so that we see things as God sees them - and act accordingly. With regard to creation and our responsibilities in and for it, the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ illumines much that would otherwise remain shadowy and unresolved.
Hence, this stimulating volume offers biblical, theological and scientific perspectives on creation and the environment, in the hope that we may learn to see the world more clearly, to perceive its beauty and brokenness when and where we ought, and to reflect God's love and wisdom in how we relate to all he has made.
The contributions begin with Old and New Testament studies, then move through theological reflection to particular applications. While the importance of ecology is recognized, a Christians' first responsibility is to the God who has revealed himself in Christ, and who has called us to his service - and it is out of that calling to serve the Creator and Redeemer God that our motivation arises to share the divine commitment to creation and the environment for 'as long as the earth endures' (Genesis 8:22)

As Long As The Earth EnduresMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
With contributors like Alister McGrath, R.J Berry & Sean McDonough to name just a few, you know this book is going to be of a serious calibre and it really is. This is real Biblical studies, meets creation and environmental theology and ethics head on.
There is in this book a real theological call to good husbandry, as it were. That call is first given in the book of Genesis, and is echoed throughout the literature and imagery of the Old and New Testaments used over and over again. Tall growing, strong rooted tree's, lush, verdant flowing waters, and many others.
All of these are well recited and used to demonstrate how we have a biblical mandate to care for our environment and our world, and remind us that we are not using as we should.
This book is not an easy read—it is an academic work—but it is one that is well worth struggling with, as the environment becomes more a focus we need to address. Certainly a must read for any church or individual that is truly interested in the environment and green issues at a deeper level.
