I read this with my Education for Ministry (EfM) seminar group. Part I was very interesting and spurred much conversation on the theological roots of creation care and how the author is focused on Genesis 1:12 as well as Deuternomy. For many in my group, it was a new way of viewing creation care as they had never done so from a theological sense. Written only six years ago, the book is already out of date as to the statistics, facts, and explanations that make up Parts II and III. Thankfully, the author offered a webinar over Zoom to discuss the book and bring his thoughts on the topic up-to-date. I recommend this book for anyone interested in making a connection between scripture and the challenges of climate change. For those well-versed in the science, the theological gives a good balance. For those who already "get it," a more recent publication would be more helpful. But it certainly spurred a lively conversation!
