Item description for Nature Trails and Gospel Tales: Stories of Grace from the Wilds of Mississippi by Ernest Herndon...

Ernest Herndon is the outdoors editor at a Mississippi newspaper. He's also the religion editor. Strange combination that his may seem, he has found that the two areas overlap quiet naturally. In this book Herndon combines his woodsman's wisdom and fervent faith to explore the great outdoors--trekking through the forest, sloughing through swamps and riding over rapids--all the while keeping an eye out for the fingerprints of God. So grab your backpack, put on your hiking boots, and head out with Herndon for fourteen outdoor adventures, each leading to the wildest yet safest place of all, the expansive country of God's heart.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nature Trails and Gospel Tales: Stories of Grace from the Wilds of Mississippi?

Comforting, not really inspiring  Aug 9, 2006
I bought the book as part of my research on setting up a Creation Care ministry at my church (I'm not a minister). Most books on the subject are written by people outside of the South, so I was intrigued by this collection of Christian essays from a small-town newspaper columnist from Mississippi.

They are all very well written, both as nature writing and as devotional texts. My criticism is that the book's point of view is "consumerist." I don't mean that it's about shopping or sustainability. I mean that the author's experiences and inspirations are all connected to enjoying the wonders of God's creation, but almost nothing about protecting them, about espousing responsible stewardship of creation.

Mr. Herndon takes care of his own property, based on the enjoyable accounts of his garden, but I wonder what his stance would be if someone uphill from his land were to clear-cut all the timber and let the resulting erosion mar his hard work. What would his reaction be to the resulting reduction in songbirds, the sparrows that God promises to keep his eye on?

Am I expected to thank God for a beautiful forest and then recant when a windswept parking lot replaces it?

I'm not suggesting that the book should be a saber-rattling call for environmental activism. Such books---secular and Christian---are already in print and selling well, and Mr. Herndon's presumed audience is not known for its receptiveness to strident greenspeak. I'm just suggesting that he could balance his songs of praise with a note or two of caution or practical advice.
