More detailed reports are also available for this title.

Short Description:   Discover how Christians can play a crucial role in maintaining the environment as stewards of Godīs creation. "So,let us join together, not only to explore the dark recesses of creationīs degradations, but also to resurface into the Bibleīs teachings on creationīs care and keeping--and then to ascend into joyful stewardship of the faithful children of God"
Long Description:   Noted environmentalist Calvin B. DeWitt encourages Christians to care for the environment as stewards of Godīs creation. Earth-Wise describes in detail the wonders of Godīs creation and how fallen humanity and modern society have abused it. DeWitt provides biblical and theological perspectives on creation care as well as practical ideas for how Christians can respond to environmental issues. Discussion questions are included, as well as an outline of a workshop session on putting creation care into practice.

Normal number/length of sessions If the curriculum's normal lesson plan is followed, there will be 6 class sessions each lasting about 1.5 hours
In the judgement of the reviewer:
 using these materials, or even just one session from them, a reasonable, coherent and self-contained class can be offered in a single session of about an hour.
 using these materials, a class can be offered that runs for at least two sessions.
