Remember Creation: God's World of Wonder and Delight

Scott Hoezee, Author Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company $15 (127p) ISBN 978-0-8028-4470-5
""Christian congregations that show the greatest seriousness for the Bible are the very same congregations that tend to be the least concerned about ecology,"" contends Scott Hoezee, pastor of Calvin Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, Mich. Hoezee argues that, since God created and delighted in the world at creation, God continues to do so today. Therefore, Christians should care for and nurture all living things and make this care an integral part of their faith. Through specific and general descriptions of God's wondrous world, Hoezee exhorts readers to cultivate a heart appreciative and thankful for the environment. To accomplish this, he suggests that we plan vacations in locales that bring us into deeper contact with nature, educate ourselves and our children through nature books and other media, adopt a pet and redesign churches to make them full of living plants and other reminders of Gods created order. Hoezee gently prods readers to make painless yet environmentally profound changes in their world by recycling whenever possible (in home and church), lobbying for legislation that protects the environment and supporting such legislation with money as well as words.
