This book draws together the excerpts of John Stott’s writings, sermons, and seminar messages on creation care from 1958-2010. The narrative thread of Sam Berry’s commentary traces the development of Stott’s thought in this area and the influences on him as he sought to integrate creation care into our understanding of ordinary discipleship and mission within the global church. It includes Forewords by Ruth Valerio and Ruth Padilla DeBorst, as well as an Afterword by Ruth Padilla DeBorst, and excerpts from Chris Wright’s and Dave Bookless’ writings as well.
The back-story for this book is actually quite interesting: Sam Berry, longtime environmentalist and passionate Christian, had collected and started cataloguing Stott’s creation care materials before the Lord took him home three years ago of years ago. His work came to the attention of Laura S. Meitzner Yoder, Director and John Stott Chair, Human Needs & Global Resources (HNGR) Program and Professor of Environmental Studies at Wheaton College who has brought the work to completion.
