Why Care for Creation?: From Prudence to Piety
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.
