Environmental Stewardship by J. Douma

If any single word in the Christian vocabulary captures our relationship to--and responsibility for--the environment, that word is stewardship. It is a word that brings into view the relationship between humanity and the natural world of water, land, animals, and fellow human beings. Nevertheless, today, some people think Christianity, especially Calvinism, is largely responsible for many of our environmental problems. The language of exercising dominion, subduing the earth, creation mandate, and technological progress somehow suggests abuse, exploitation, and pollution. But are these criticisms correct? In this book you will receive an honest and clearheaded analysis from a Christian perspective of our role as human beings in caring for the environment, along with careful explanation of important Bible passages and teachings relating to environmental stewardship. What about humanity's relationship to the earth, to animals, to their own genetic capacities? What about genetic screening? Germline therapy? Eugenics? When do science and scientific experimentation cross the moral boundary line? This primer will introduce you to this timely moral discussion, while placing before your eyes with honest detail both the damage resulting from our human interaction with the creation, and our personal duties toward the Creator of this earth.
