Rate this:
Steven Chase's innovative On Earth As it Is uses a compelling blend of theological, scriptural, historical, and cultural discussions to reclaim the role of nature in the formation of Christian spiritual and moral identity. His thought-provoking "creation practices" will lead readers into more profound knowledge of themselves and their Creator, guide them to greater compassion for their neighbors, instill in them reverence for and companionship with nature, and awaken in them a greater commitment to creation care. · Encourages Christians to read the Bible, pray, and worship out of doors. · Demonstrates the power of nature to soothe and heal the soul. · Advocates "befriending" God's creation as a crucial element in Christian growth. · Show how the Bible is full of natural images -- and how nature itself can function as a holy text, testifying to the glory of God. Offers stories, anecdotes, research, scriptural tie-ins, practical advice, and contemplative exercises to help readers experience God in nature.
