Overview

You’ve probably heard the story of the garden of Eden—the paradise that God created for humans to live in. There was plenty of room for everyone, there were trees and flowers and plenty of food. When you look out your window today you don’t see the paradise God intended for us. This world is crowded, polluted, and headed for trouble. But it’s not hopeless. Emma Sleeth is only sixteen, and she’s working hard to save our planet.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Sleeth, now an Asbury College student, is a precocious advocate for environmental issues. She wrote this book when she was just 15. (And, no, she wasn't homeschooled, if that's what you're wondering.) She shares her passion for Jesus and for saving the planet, in roughly that order. Although the book is clearly aimed at teen and young adult readers, Sleeth is skillful enough at sermon illustrations that her anecdotes about babysitting, high school cliques and Mom's homemade meals help illuminate her points for older readers as well. Pull-out boxes offer concrete suggestions for young Christians who want to go green, but aren't sure how to go about it. (Apr.)

One of God's first commands to His people was for them to tend His garden; a task that often gets forgotten in our fast-paced, consumer-driven world. Teenager Emma Sleeth has a heart for God and preserving His precious planet, sharing this passion with her fellow generation in It's Easy Being Green.

Sleeth uses biblical knowledge and principles to show how it's easy to take little steps to better preserve our planet. The book is broken down into chapters, each discussing a different topic, but also has a splattering of random tidbits and eay-to-do facts throughout.

At the end, there's an appendix with applicable Bible quotes, other books and resources, as well as organizations to consider. No matter your political agenda, readers receive a healthy 'green' perspective on how to best tend God's garden.

Although written and mainly addressed to teens, this book would be suitable for any-age reader and would make a good addition to home-school curriculum on Earth Day. — May 2008 issue of CBA Retailers + Resources
