Hope for Animals and Their World

I just bought a great new book by Jane Goodall with Thane Maynard and Gail Hudson called Hope for Animals and Their World. It's a great text full of stories of hope about creatures brought back from the brink. If you are experiencing environmental fatigue or depressionb this might be just the book you need. Jane is an enjoyable writer, you feel like she is talking you through these interesting stories of dedicated conservationists and the species they have saved. You can find more details on Amazon at the address below. I'll provide a full review when I finish reading it.

Important Lessons from the Bible

Why Jesus came:
"that the world might be saved through him"
John 3:17

Who Jesus is going to use to save the world:
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God."
Romans 8:19

Our role on earth:
"The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it."
Genesis 2:15

The Five Pillars of A Christian Theology of Sustainability

1. God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of creation.

2. Covenantal Stewardship (we have a covenant with God as stewards of the earth).

3. The creation-fall-redemption paradigm (God made a good world; human failure broke the relationships between god, man and creation; Christ provides hope for all creation).

4.Bodily resurrection(we will rise with bodies, not as spirits)

5.New Creation (a new Heaven and new Earth refers to a renewal and an earthing of heaven, not starting over).
