But I am convinced that the stewardship of this planet is not alien or peripheral to the message of the Gospel. Rather, as a professional exegete, a professor of biblical studies, and a theologian, I find that our rule of faith and praxis, our Bible, has a great deal to say about this topic. See Richter’s forthcoming book Environmentalism.

Best Environmental Books Contemporary fiction or non-fiction, how-to guides to green living, ecology tracts from the tree-hugging '70s, and those seminal works that chronicled the first stirrings of the conservation ethic.

Gospel Principles was written both as a personal study guide and as a teacher’s manual. As you study it, seeking the Spirit of the Lord, you can grow in your understanding and testimony of God the Father, Jesus Christ and His Atonement, and the Restoration of the gospel.

The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World, by Jeff Goodell. The False Green Gospel of the Environmental Movement Much of the environmental movement has gotten back to its pagan roots as it subtly fosters rejection of the Bible and Christianity.

So called Spiritual Greens tell us that Earth can save herself.
