The Bible is clear: mankind was meant to exercise godly domination over the earth. Yet today men mine valuable resources by whatever method brings the greatest profit in the shortest time, leaving the earth ravaged. They hunt and fish for pleasure, not food, leaving animal carcasses behind to rot. They worship self and ignore the God who made them.The answer to the ecological crises of our day is found only in the glorious truths of biblical Christianity: God createdex nihilo; He is both infinite and personal; we are made in His image and thus have great value in Him; Christ's death brought redemption from the consequences of the Fall (for believing individuals now and for all creation when He returns).There are indeed serious ecological crises in our world, but, says Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer, one of the greatest Christian thinkers of our time: "The Christian who believes the Bible should be the man who--with God's help and in the power of the Holy Spirit--is treating nature now in the direction of the way nature will be [when Christ returns].... God's calling to the Christian now, and to the Christian community, in the area of nature... is that we should exhibit a substantial healing here and now."A powerful Christian classic--a marvelous theological response to ecological danger signals.… (més)

Francis A. Schaeffer was a theologian and apologist whose works addressed worldview and the problems of civilization. This book is a response to articles published in 1967, one by Lynn White, Jr. and one by Richard L. Means. Schaeffer counters White's suggestion that Christianity is the cause of the world's environmental problems, and Means's proposal of pantheism as a solution to environmental problems.

Schaeffer cautions Christians to avoid a Platonic dichotomy, where nature is valued only as a proof of the existence of God. He concedes that White is correct when “he looks back over the history of Christianity and sees that there is too much Platonic thinking in Christianity where nature is concerned.”

Schaeffer concludes that a biblical view of nature is the answer for environmental problems:

On the basis of the fact that there is going to be total redemption in the future, not only of man but of all creation, the Christian who believes the Bible should be the man who—with God's help and the power of the Holy Spirit—is treating nature now in the direction of the way nature will be then. It will not now be perfect, but there should be something substantial or we have missed our calling. God's calling to the Christian now, and to the Christian community in the area of nature...is that we should exhibit a substantial healing here and now, between man and nature and nature itself, as far as Christians can bring it to pass.

Here, Francis Schaeffer in 1970, already anticipating the environmental battles, lays out the Christian position concerning the relationship of man to nature. He rejects pantheism, which reduces the worth of man, as a solution, but rather calls upon man to embrace nature as part of God's creation. "God is interested in creation. He does not despise it. There is no reason whatsoever, and it is absolutely false Biblically, for the Christian to have a Platonic view of nature. What God has made, I, who am also a creature, must not despise." The concluding chapter is written by Udo Middelmann, who discusses the failures of different political and cultural systems to protect nature and draws us back to the Judeo-Christian tradition which "is not able to prevent its adherents from making mistakes in their treatment of the environment; but it does furnish a basis for rational and valid criticism of those mistakes."
