A few years ago, Joel and I listened to a talk by Dr. Timothy Keller (pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC), which changed the way I viewed environmentalism. I was skeptical when it came to a Christian perspective on environmental issues, conditioned by articles I read to scoff at the intensity of care given to certain species and so on. I am still learning to navigate the waters of stewardship and science, knowing it takes discernment to humbly play our role and know who to listen to. But for starters, here Tim Keller gives some very compelling reasons why Christians have more reason than anyone to care for the earth. It may surprise you and I highly recommend it!
