Happy Earth Day Giveaway! Green Like God by Jonathan Merritt


Green Like God: Unlocking the Divine Plan for Our Planet
by Jonathan Merritt

In GREEN LIKE GOD, Jonathan Merritt gently and insightfully observes that the bible has a lot to say about environmental problems like unclean water, material waste, over consumption, air pollution, and global warming. In fact, Jonathan writes that "in the book of Genesis, God went green and never looked back." Relying heavily on scripture, Jonathan gives the case for green living, but not because it's trendy and hip. Rather, it's part of living rightly as a believer. It's an act of obedience to our Creator-God.



GREEN LIKE GOD is at once practical, prescriptive, and conversational in tone. The author looks at a number of trends with tips to help the reader wade into the world of creation care living. An appendix includes suggestions of things we can do. In addition, the book includes interviews with everyday Christians to tell the story of the journey to environmental stewardship among people of faith.

This is the book that Christians are longing for and need today. Written for a new generation of Christians who are struggling with how to deal with the important issue of creation-care and green living, GREEN LIKE GOD is both highly relevant and theologically sound. It will have a profound impact on how Christians live and interact with the world today.

I started to unplug appliances when not in use. Even if they aren't on they are still using electricity. I have noticed my electric bill went down a little, so I am conserving on electricity.

I started not to use harsh chemicals and to use green cleansers, instead.

Although I have been recycling for years, I haven't added any new Green measures to my routine.

Hmmm. We already recycle, use tote bags, changed light bulbs and filter water (instead of bottles)...but I don't think we've started doing anything new this year. Guess I could use some new ideas after all. :0)

Thanks!

We're using tote bags and filter bottles ~ I purchased a couple of bags of Sun Chips with the biodegradable bags

We upgraded our old furnace so now we are using less fuel. We have already been using the totes, but I am sure this book has many more ideas.
