New Creation Ecology is a heart appeal to fellow Christians to consider environmental stewardship as a vital part of their relationship to their Creator, Jesus Christ. The new birth is the vital link to knowing his presence spiritually as well as by asking the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, the earth, and the fish of the sea where he enjoys the expression of his own nature and desires to share in the wonder of it all with the crown of his creation-man.
Recommendation: I think New Creation Ecology is a worthy contribution to an otherwise neglected subject. I like the perspective of personal and passionate advocacy from a biblical perspective. May the Lord use it to stir Christians to a more mindful and conscientious stewardship of God’s beautiful garden! Pastor Craig Harris, Grace Baptist Church, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.
Tom’s work sets the Christian on a course for a God-honoring care of nature, for love of its Creator, and a desire for His glory through biblical stewardship. I commend Tom’s work, and all his efforts, to call all of us to a biblical stewardship of our Father’s world. Jeff Garner, Administrator, Providence Christian Academy, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.
I highly recommend Tom’s book, New Creation Ecology, which is a study of the Christian witness to God’s creation. Tom’s autobiographical approach makes this book personal as well as biblical and theological. His stories and descriptions of the natural world invite the reader into the forests, streams and mountains that he explores. His passion for stewardship of God’s world is evident throughout. As an avid lover of God’s creation, I will be giving this book to my children and grandchildren to further inspire their love of God the Creator. C. Kenneth Shannon, Ph.D.
