Large tending to eden

From the director of a faith-based environmental action organization, Tending to Eden directs individuals and congregations along a path to responsible action. The author tells stories from his work among impoverished two-thirds world communities, making the connection between poverty and environmental degradation and arguing for a coherent Christian response. Sidebar notes feature wisdom and guidance from noted environmental stewards and church leaders. Woven throughout are theological and biblical reflection and descriptions of best creation care practices from model practitioners. The appendix includes a Bible study of 4-6 sessions. A “Take Action” guide gives individuals, households, and congregations a variety of practical ways to make a difference, and there is a resource list of books and organizations for further exploration. Tending to Eden is aimed at evangelicals but can be readily accessed by a wider audience for use with leadership teams, small groups, and individuals.
