Review:

"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 environmentalists read it?' They need to read it, and understand the power Christianity has to help save the living environment--not just in voting numbers, but also out of strength from spirituality and rational argument."--E. O. Wilson, Harvard University, author of Consilience and The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth

"Our Father's World clearly lays out how mistreatment of the physical world around us is the result of sin, how care of God's creation is a biblical mandate and how the church, the corporate body of believers around the world, can bring about significant change. The issues this book addresses are vitally important for Christians today."--Jim Tebbe, director of the Urbana Student Missions Convention and vice president of missions, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship

"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 practicing the full biblical message of stewardship."--Joseph K. Sheldon, professor of biology and environmental science, Messiah College

"This book is a remarkable combination of a broad spectrum of the environmental crisis in the world today coupled with a deep understanding of God's desire for his creation as developed in the Scriptures. It is full of well-written illustrations that show what the church (universal) and the church (local) need to do to obey God's commands and desires for his world. I highly recommend this book as both easily readable yet profound in its challenge to Christians and others today."--David M. Howard, former president, Latin America Mission

"Ed Brown makes the case for why the church is the last, best hope for response to this defining issue of the twenty-first century. . . . Our Father's World is our clarion call."--From the foreword by Ed Johnson, President, Au Sable Institute for Environmental Studies

"Our Father's World helps identify some of the most pressing moral questions of our age: Is there an environmental crisis? If there is, why should we care and what should we do about it? Turning to the living Bible for answers, Ed Brown helps church leaders become better stewards of God's creation. A valuable addition to the growing creation care movement, Our Father's World offers a message of hope and redemption: 'though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.'"--J. Matthew Sleeth, M.D., author of Serve God, Save the Planet, executive director, A Rocha USA

"Our Father's World offers a marvelous contribution to the evangelical creation care movement. The book is simultaneously intellectual and practical. The first half of the book offers a rather comprehensive recasting of core biblical theology themes in a remarkably accessible way. It shows the potential for mainstreaming creation care concerns into evangelical theology, which is crucial for the future of creation care among us. The second half of the book turns in a very practical direction, offering a thoughtful and thorough treatment of action steps for Christian care of creation. What I most appreciate about the book is Brown's recognition that ultimately the crisis in God's creation is a spiritual problem, a failure to live rightly before and with God and neighbor, and therefore it requires a profoundly spiritual solution. This means that the church, more than the state, holds the key to the human future. An excellent book."--David P. Gushee, Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics, McAfee School of Theology, and President, Evangelicals for Human Rights

Brown's book is a valuable resource for lay people and church leaders. Don't miss it.--Sonia Urban, Youth Worker Journal, January/February 2009

Well-written and persuasive, Brown's book takes a hard look at the current crisis, but also expresses optimism that Christians can and will change the world.--Publisher's Weekly, March 3, 2008

Gbriwn presents a theologically grounded, scientifically informed, faith community approach to caring for creation.--Sonia Urban, Youth Worker Journal, November/December 2008
