About-

Even as evidence accumulates that humans have significantly contributed to global climate change, many Christians have questions about what it means to care for creation. Some question whether focusing on creation care takes away from a person's spirituality or from caring for other humans. Others wonder to what extent we can live peaceably with nonhuman creation. Still others wonder whether we should be better stewards of the environment and whether developing better technology might save us from the current crisis. The diverse authors of this volume address these questions in an accessible way.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Care for creation has become marginalized in conversations concerning the quest for justice; nevertheless, our very lives depend on . . . respecting the earth. It is no accident that those most likely to be disenfranchised are those who depend the most on the earth for its survival. Hence, A Faith Encompassing All Creation is a crucial addition to the justice discourse. By gathering diverse voices, the reader is led to explore this crucial issue. Our only hope is that such elucidation leads to praxis."
--Miguel de la Torre, Iliff School of Theology, Denver, Colorado

"This book gets our attention. It is prophetic. For those of us who have been soothed into 'let's be nice to creation' this is an altar call to conversion to a radical and responsible life. We must repent, not simply because all creation calls out to us but because God calls."
--Kyle Childress, Austin Heights Baptist Church, Nacogdoches, Texas

"What could be more important for Christians today than to read A Faith Encompassing All Creation? We are in desperate need of a vision of Christian faith that can inspire commitment and action to save the biodiversity of our planet. This book brings together a vibrant diversity of voices, men and women, young and old, from various Christian traditions, all committed to love for the Earth and all its creatures as God's good creation."
--Denis Edwards, Australian Catholic University
