Environmental concerns are receiving more attention than ever before; as a result, many Christians are beginning to see the mission to save the earth as the most important ministry of the Church. While recognizing that care for the environment is a worthwhile pursuit, this book seeks to warn Christians about the pitfalls of an unqualified embrace of environmentalism. 

The authors offer a thoroughgoing critique of the origins and implications of radical environmentalism and its view of God, human beings, and animals. In the process they show that this ideology calls for a fundamental reordering of priorities in a way which is essentially hostile to the Christian tradition. In place of this radical ideology, they offer an alternative Christian ecology that views man as created in the image of God, that takes sin seriously, and that looks to Christ and the redemption available through him as the key to the true meaning of creation.
