Sandra Richter: Stewards of Eden

Stewards of Eden: What Scripture Says About the Environment and Why It Matters
(IVP, 2020)

WHO: Sandra Richter, Robert H. Gundry Chair of Biblical Studies at Westmont College.

SHE SAYS: “We the church are MIA on the issue of environmental stewardship.”

THE BIG IDEA: The purpose of this book is to demonstrate via Scripture that the stewardship of the planet is not an alien concept but an expression of the character of God.

In seven chapters the author builds a scriptural foundation for why Christians should be concerned with being good stewards of the earth.

“Can a Christian be an environmentalist? My answer is, how could a son of Adam or daughter of Eve, redeemed and transformed by the second Adam to live eternally in the resurrected Eden, be anything else?”
