Reviews - What do customers think about Earth-Wise: A Biblical Response to Environmental Issues (Issues in Christian Living) 2nd Edition?
Book is Best-Seller at Leawood Baptist Church May 20, 2008
When I ordered my first 20 copies of EARTH-WISE, it was my intent to make it available to couples who would participate in my book study as a "community study tool." The book was so popular, however, that another full order of 20 was made to accommodate the requests from our members who each wanted a book for him/herself in which to make notations throughout our study and to review individually. As today's politicians take to task environmental issues in their endeavor to achieve the highest power, they are forgetting that THE Highest Power, our God, has created the Earth for us to use and enjoy wisely. Dr. DeWitt is very adept at getting this point across in a scholarly manner, yet he is not "preachy" in his text. The group session portions have aided me greatly as I have prepared for each week's class. They have produced many quality discussions from which our members have benefitted. I highly recommend this book to any clergy wishing to delve into exploring the current environmental status with your congregation.

DeWitt offers a compact but practical handbook for discussing Christian environmental stewardship in the church. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in broadening their views of what it means to be pro-environment in the body of Christ.
