Book is Best-Seller at Leawood Baptist Church May 20 2008
By Michael McKinney - Published on
Format: Paperback
When I ordered my first 20 copies of EARTH-WISE, it was my intent to make it available to couples who would participate in my book study as a "community study tool." The book was so popular, however, that another full order of 20 was made to accommodate the requests from our members who each wanted a book for him/herself in which to make notations throughout our study and to review individually. As today's politicians take to task environmental issues in their endeavor to achieve the highest power, they are forgetting that THE Highest Power, our God, has created the Earth for us to use and enjoy wisely. Dr. DeWitt is very adept at getting this point across in a scholarly manner, yet he is not "preachy" in his text. The group session portions have aided me greatly as I have prepared for each week's class. They have produced many quality discussions from which our members have benefitted. I highly recommend this book to any clergy wishing to delve into exploring the current environmental status with your congregation.

Lord of all or merely a section? Dec 26 2008
By Scot F. Martin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cal Dewitt has done the church a great service by authoring this short book. In it he outlines Biblical reasons for stewarding nature. He reminds us of how much our survival depends on biodiversity, clean air, soil, and water, and beauty. He, implicitly, puts to shame the gnostic idea of a dirty world and a pure Heaven. Granted, sin and our continued mistreatment have dirtied the earth, but to think that because it is material or is "going to burn" means God doesn't care about his creation is a severe mistake.
This book is perfect for someone just beginning to waken to the world around them or a church group looking for ways to make their church a "Creation Awareness Station." His last section is filled with more than enough ideas for individuals and churches to dirty their hands with Earth-Keeping, and by implication, worship the Lord of Heaven and Earth.

Best Bible Study on Creation Stewardship Aug. 30 2010
By Susan Drake, Au Sable Institute of - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have used Cal DeWitt's Earthwise book for many years in the college classroom.It is well received by college students. I am now using it at Moraine Valley Church for an hour long, 8 week, "Equip Hour" class. It is the perfect book to introduce congregants to the biblical foundation for creation stewardship, to the provisions and degradations of creation and to move the church toward action. The last chapter is specifically designed for a workshop that would lead to a creation stewardship vision and action plan for churches. I highly recommend it!

DeWitt offers a compact but practical handbook for discussing Christian environmental stewardship in the church. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in broadening their views of what it means to be pro-environment in the body of Christ.

A very worthwhile book. We're using it as the text in a Sunday School class sponsored by our Earth Care Ministry Team. The review of the scriptural roots for environmental involvement is persuasive and there are many practical suggestions for action.
