Eco-Curriculum Review for the title
Living the Good Life on God's Good Earth

This is the general report format.

Eco-Justice Ministries has seen this resource, but a full review is still pending.
The information here is from our staff's initial examination of the materials.

Short Description:   A compelling invitation to live out our calling as caretakers of Godís good earth in our daily living.
Long Description:   Written by a team of 12 Christian environmentalists, this thought-provoking book helps readers find ways to care for creation in their daily living. Chapters address:
  • the way we live
  • the homes we live in
  • the food we eat
  • the clothes we wear
  • the energy we use
  • the plants we grow
  • the work we are called to do
  • and what we do for rest and enjoyment.
Discussion questions help small groups talk about a Christianís role in stewardship. Great for a 10-week Sunday school study or small group!
