    Although a dense read has its place, I felt as if I were reading a textbook. It would make a wonderful textbook, actually. Note to reader: this is a Christian-based approach to the subject of ecology. There were so many valuable messages to take away from this book. What resonated most with me was the question, "What kind of person would do such a thing?" when we look at the destruction of the beautiful creatures and scenery around us.

Note to reader: this is a Christian-based approach to the subject of ecology. There were so many valuable messages to take away from this book. What resonated most with me was the question, "What kind of person would do such a thing?" when we look at the destruction of the beautiful creatures and scenery around us. What kind of person would not only participate in the defilement and destruction of our planet, but even take enjoyment from it? Conversely, we can ask "What kind of person would do such a thing?" when we see the good being done in the world by people who are willing to donate their time and money, and even dedicate their very lives, to preserving and protecting our planet. I hope to be better at being such a person.

    Not sure what I had expected but this book is intensive and extensive. It takes the subject on as if we are in crisis, taking the attitude of How dare we treat the natural world so disrespectfully. While written from a Christian perspective, it will resonate for non-Christians as well. This would be a great bible study and could make a great series of sermons

    There are some really helpful things in this book, such as a taxonomy of moral goods which Bouma-Prediger relates to ecological ethics. As a whole though, this book is pretty disenchanting and theologically malnourished, at least in terms of its imagination.
