Edward R Brown, Our Father’s World: Mobilizing the Church to Care for Creation, 172 pages, 2006, Doorlight Publications. (List: $15.00), CBD $11.99).

“This is an important book that should be on every pastor’s shelf and in every church library. Creation today is crying out for the Church to begin preaching and practicting the full biblical message of stewardship.” Joseph Sheldon, Messiah College

“Our Father’s World is a beautiful and inspiring book. I will keep it on hand both for consultation and reference. When I first opened it, the question on my mind was, “Will evangelicals read it?” As I approached the close, the question became “Will secular environmentists read it?” They need to read it, and understand the power Christianity has to help save the living environment–not ┬ájust in voting numbers, but also out of strength from spirituality and rational argument.”–Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University.
