Abstract

Why should people, and Christians in particular, care for creation? What reasons, what arguments, are there for taking our ecological responsibilities more seriously? In this article Steven Bouma-Prediger presents and evaluates ten arguments for caring for creation. His main claim is that for a variety of good reasons, like Dr. Seuss's Lorax, Christians should speak for the trees---they should care for non-human creation. Mr. Bouma-Prediger teaches in the religion department at Hope College.
