Item description for Serve God, Save the Planet: A Christian Call to Action by J. Matthew Sleeth M. D....

Overview
Not long ago, J. Matthew Sleeth had a fantastic life and a great job as chief of the medical staff at a large hospital. He was living the American dream?until he saw an increasing number of his patients suffering from cancer, asthma, and other chronic diseases. He began to suspect that the Earth and its inhabitants were in deep trouble.
Turning to Jesus for guidance, Sleeth discovered how the scriptural lessons of personal responsibility, simplicity, and stewardship could be applied to modern life. The Sleeths have since sold their big home and given away more than half of what they once owned. In Serve God, Save the Planet, Sleeth shares the joy of adopting a less materialistic, healthier lifestyle, stronger relationships, and richer spiritual lives. With the storytelling ease of James Herriot and the logical clarity of C. S. Lewis, Sleeth lays out the rationale for environmentally responsible life changes and a how-to guide for making those changes.

With the storytelling ease of James Herriot and the logical clarity of C. S. Lewis, Sleeth lays out the rationale for environmentally responsible life changes and a how-to guide for making those changes. Creation is groaning. And Matthew Sleeth has responded. Serve God, Save the Planet is not an alarmist call of despair, but a hopeful invitation to re-imagine the way we live. Sleeth s words have the urgency of an ER crisis coupled with the deep faith that the Church is ready to join God in healing the wounded world. --Shane Claiborne, activist and author of The Irresistible Revolution."

Reviews - What do customers think about Serve God Save The Planet?

Absolutely wonderful!  Mar 15, 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Dr. Sleeth shares some fantastic stories from his life experiences, and makes a convincing argument for why we are called to be good stewards of God's creations. I found the book inspiring, and would definitely recommend it to everyone I know.
 
A Sincere and Constructive Call To Stewardship  Sep 14, 2006
I found this book to be inviting and exciting. Dr. Sleeth focuses on what I believe is the heart of Christianity - living thoughtfully, compassionately, and carefully. We are stewards of this world and should use our best efforts to assure that the necessities of safe and healthy living are available to all people as well as the animals and plants that live with us.
Consistently Biblically-based, Dr. Sleeth's message will appeal to the entire spectrum of Christian believers. And there is nothing exclusionary in his appeal. Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Native Americans, Bahai - no one will find any cause for offense and all will be persuaded by the invitation to live simply so others may simply live.
If you are an apocalyptic believer eager for the Second Coming, you are invited to live prudently while you wait. If you are unchurched or a non-believer, you can enjoy the benefits of of a healthier, more considerate life style. Buy it and share it.
 
Follows both his journey and the connections between Christianity and environmental thinking as a whole  Aug 17, 2006
Five years ago the author had a great job, home, and comfortable married life with kids - until he realized something was wrong as he saw increasing numbers of patients suffering from cancer, asthma, and chronic illness. His religious introspection led to a newfound path away from affluence and more in tune with a less materialistic, earth-friendly lifestyle and SERVE GOD, SAVE THE PLANET follows both his journey and the connections between Christianity and environmental thinking as a whole.

Inspired to change  Jun 8, 2006
After reading Dr.Sleeth's book I was inspired to change to flourescent light bulbs, stop using our dryer. get a clothesline and bike to work. Dr.Sleeth makes his appeal in a way that helps one understand how one person or family can reduce their impact on the environment. He appeals from a Christian perspective and connects in a way that strict environmentalists often cannot. I'd recommend his book to anyone trying to understand how their daily actions and lifestle impact the environment and what they can do to minimize that.
 
Convicting while Instructing  Jun 6, 2006
I found this book to be an easy read although it does contain a wealth of information. Many of the topics confirm scripture and many are confirmed by life around me but all of the points are very motivational for change. Some of Dr. Sleeth's personal stories brought a chuckle and others moved me with deep compassion. I purchased four copies of the book to give to friends and family, including my son and daughter-in-law who live in Washington state. They both are marine biologists and are very interested in environmental issues. They struggle when it comes to convincing their church friends that we are all responsible to God to take care of this planet. This book is such a great tool because it makes it so clear...if we love God and we say we love what He loves, we must act like it. Taking care of the earth is one of our responsibilities before God and it is not optional. My husband is an oral surgeon and we attend a conservative, independent Baptist church. Our pastor read the book and now is planning to organize a workshop on stewardship for area churches using this book. I give this book five stars for convicting and instructing me to change. I thank Dr. Sleeth for helping to bridge the gap between environmentalist and Christians...a gap that clearly should not exist.
