Publisher's Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Creation Care: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

The obvious damage that human beings are inflicting on the created world as well as the growing scientific consensus that humankind is contributing measurably to the potentially devastating effects of global warming have thrust the "environment" to the forefront of political and social issues. Yet most evangelicals, including leaders and pastors, lack the theological basis needed to respond biblically to these issues. Many of the theological assessments currently offered suffer from theological and/or hermeneutical biases that render them unpalatable or inaccessible to evangelicals. Moreover, few of the theological treatments interact capably with scientific data.

Creation Care: Audio Lectures, presented by scholars Douglas and Jonathan Moo, grounds theological reflection on the created world in scriptural exegesis and applies biblical principles to the current situation as described by the consensus of scientific investigators. Lessons trace several key biblical themes through Scripture in an effort to situate the created world within biblical theology. Specific themes that receive attention include:

  • The value and status assigned to nonhuman creation
  • The relationship of creation to redemption
  • The place of human beings within creation
  • The understanding of and significance assigned to the land in Old Testament law and prophecy
  • The future of the created world envisaged by the New Testament

Creation Care: Audio Lectures and its accompanying book, Creation Care, offer practical reflections on the biblical mandate that God's people embody God's perspective on the created world; they also consider how the command to love others might affect the way we treat the earth upon which all life depends. Overall, Jonathan and Douglas seek to recapture the joy expressed by the Psalmists in God's good creation while also giving serious attention to threats facing creation.

An intro to the Christian view of the environment

I appreciated the father and son team. There were both good insights on what the Bible says and up to date information on the state of various environmental factors. These were primarily recorded as videos, and I am sure these would be amazing, but unfortunately, as audio, you can hear the wind at times, and it detracts from the sound.
It would be better if audible could add track titles instead of just chap 1, 2... they should be:
1 intro
2 What Do Christians Have to Do with Creation?
3 How Do We Think Biblically and Theologically about Creation?
4 A Beautiful World
5 Members, Rulers, and Keepers of Creation
6 Humanity and the Earth, Israel and the Land
7 A Creation Subjected to Frustration
8 Jesus and Creation
9 “What Counts Is the New Creation”
10 “I Am Making Everything New!”
11 The Gospel and Creation Care
12 Humans and Creation: Understanding Our Place
13 Wisdom and Creation Care
14 Creation in Crisis?
15 Caring for Creation and Worshipping the Creator

SINCERE THINKERS ADVOCATE FOR ALL CREATION CARE

Father and son, author, plus, thoughtfully narrate for us, this splendid offering of potent revelation from the depth of their own hearts' love for Almighty God's created wilderness
including wild city flora, while successfully blending the context of Biblical scriptures to support their goal.

It is entirely evident that much genuine thought went into why, in their view, and, especially, in Almighty God's purpose, all creation is to be cared for by all mankind.

I applaud these men for their care full unpushy way of delivery, which shows how, even though the subject matter is urgent for the entire realm of creation, they respectfully reached out to their listeners. After thoroughly hearing them out, I, also, purchased their Kindle edition.

I intend to share these two mens' gifts to promote acts of Creation Care, to those who already believe in Almighty God's Word, and, to those who are struggling with such a notion.

The care of all creation is on alot of minds due to climate changes and extinction concerns, etcetera. Extinctions of many many kinds, past and future.

Unfortunately, far too many still do not appreciate how critical it is that we change how we think about, and, act toward, all creation.
