This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. A book whose time has come, Nature, God, and Pulpit draws together and interprets, for the church and especially for preachers, the biblical materials on the relationship between God and his creation. The book is particularly timely because, as Elizabeth Achtemeier points out, few subjects have been more neglected and less explicated by this country's pulpits than the relation between nature and God. Clearly articulating what the Bible says about the material world and God's relation to it, this book is all of the following: *A thoughtful biblical response to recent discussions of ecology *A discerning corrective to many current theologies and ideologies *An appreciative summary of the findings and notions of modern science *A mother lode of materials and sample sermons on the relation of God to his creation *A passionate call for preachers to more thoroughly examine and articulate scriptural content *An eloquent and inspiring celebration of God in relation to his world While written primarily for preachers, Nature, God, and Pulpit will provide provocative reading for many others as well -- seminarians, homiletics students, teachers, and anybody who wishes to better understand the Christian view of the bond between Creator and creation.
