Endorsements & Reviews-
"This book provides an enlightening study of a number of subjects: South Korea's transformation in a mere thirty years from impoverishment into one of the 'tiger economies' of Asia; the alarming degree nonetheless of the degradation of its environment; the nation's worldview molded by Shamanism, Buddhism, Confucianism and latterly Christianity; and the millennial doctrines that prevailed in 19th-century America and were taken to Korea by missionaries. In the light of Korea's outstanding economic success one might expect optimistic Postmillennialism to be the creed of its Protestant Christians. In fact, the author shows it is Dispensational Premillennialism which, resonating with Koreans' despair of happiness in this world in the first half of the 20th century, has dominated the country's Protestant perspective and contributed to the present ecological crisis."

"A correlation between eschatology and environmental care has been long suspected but not fully explored. Cho establishes this suspected link not only through theological probing but also through a good case study of Korean Christianity. This book, thus, challenges particularly evangelically minded mission communities to take the whole creation seriously in their mission thinking and practice."
