Joyce of Fiction/AV/Teen Services recommends Green Like God: Unlocking the Divine Plan for Our Planet by Jonathan Merritt:
If you ever hiked the John Muir trail, read Thoreau’s Walden or appreciated the photography of Ansel Adams, you have been exposed to some of the pioneers of the American environmental movement. Their experiences, writings, and photographs have moved generations to action. Unfortunately, the Christian community is a late-comer to this cause. Jonathan Merritt’s challenge is this: if we say we love the Creator, then we should take care of His creation. He asks the question, if the earth declares the glory of God, then are our actions silencing his voice? If you are looking for an interesting perspective on the green movement, check out this thought-provoking book!
