Yet the significance of the Bible\'s extensive teaching about the natural world is easily overlooked by Christians accustomed to focusing only on what the Bible says about God\'s interaction with human beings. InCreation Care, part of the Biblical Theology for Life series, father and son team Douglas and Jonathan Moo invite readers to open their Bibles afresh to explore the place of the natural world within God\'s purposes and to celebrate God\'s love as displayed in creation and new creation. Following the contours of the biblical storyline, they uncover answers to questions such as: -What is the purpose of the non-human creation\' -Can a world with things like predators, parasites, and natural disasters still be the \'good\' world described in Genesis 1\' -What difference does the narrative of the \'Fall\' make for humankind\'s responsibility to rule over other creatures\' -Does Israel\'s experience on the land have anything to teach Christians about their relationship with the earth\' -What difference does Jesus make for our understanding of the natural world\' -How does our call to care for creation fit within the hope for a new heaven and a new earth\' -What is unique about Christian creation care compared with other approaches to \'environmental\' issues\' -How does creation care fit within the charge to proclaim the gospel and care for the poor\' In addition to providing a comprehensive biblical theology of creation care, they probe behind the headlines and politicized rhetoric about an \'environmental crisis\' and climate change to provide a careful and judicious analysis of the most up-to-date scientific data about the state of our world. They conclude by setting forth a bold framework and practical suggestions for an effective and faithful Christian response to the scriptural teaching about the created world. But rather than merely offering a response to environmental concerns, Creation Careinvites readers into a joyful vision of the world as God\'s creation in which they can rediscover who they truly are as creatures called to love and serve the Creator and to delight in all he has made.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Queuing the questions. 1.
