Item description for The Care of Creation: Focusing Concern and Action by R. J. Berry...

Overview
IVP Print On Demand Title For the theologians and scientists who are the contributors to this book, creation care is a matter of humansurvival and a supreme test of the reality of Christian faith. Such concern is not the selfish interest of the developed North. Nor is it a minority enthusiasm peculiar to bird watchers and tree huggers. Rather, it begins from God's creation commands and Christ's reconciling work,and what should be a communion of worship between the human and natural worlds, which recognizes that scientific and political solutions alone are inadequate.

Publishers Description
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. DeWitt, Susan Drake, Timothy Dudley-Smith, Ron Elsdon, John Guillebaud, Peter Harris, John T. Houghton, Alister E. McGrath, I. Howard Marshall, Jurgen Moltmann, Michael S. Northcott, Oliver M. T. O'Donovan, Ghillean T. Prance, Stephen Rand, Ronald J. Sider, Howard J. Van Till, Lynn White, Loren Wilkinson and Richard T. Wright."
