Earthwise is about living in harmony with the natural world around us—and sharing the joy of this living.
Sadly, our ways of life in today's global economy have led to increasing land and habitat destruction, pollution, species extinction, buildup of "greenhouse gases," and other degradations of the earth. But rather than grovel and wring our hands in despair, lifelong creation care scientist Calvin B. DeWitt suggests we discover a joyful, positive attitude about working together for good in this world. Looking forward in hope, we can make changes and take positive, lasting action that is more in harmony with the way the world works and is meant to be. This book, now in its third edition, helps to provide us and our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and fellow citizens with practical information and ideas to become truly "earthwise."
The book also includes
- discussion questions that are ideal for small groups and Bible studies.
- a mini-workshop session on putting creation care into practice.
- a final chapter of inspiring stories of stewardship at the levels of state government, university research, and local town government.
- a self-led study called "A Short Course in Environmental Science" (in the Appendix).
