In Green Like God, Jonathan Merritt gently and insightfully observes that the bible has a lot to say about environmental problems like unclean water, material waste, over consumption, air pollution, and global warming. In fact, Jonathan writes that “in the book of Genesis, God went green and never looked back.” Relying heavily on Scripture, Jonathan gives the case for green living, but not because it’s trendy and hip. Rather, it’s part of living rightly as a believer. It’s an act of obedience to our Creator: God.

Green Like God is at once practical, prescriptive, andconversational in tone. The author looks at a number of trends with tips to help the reader wade into the world of creation-care living. An appendix includes suggestions of things we can do. In addition, the book includes interviews with everyday Christians to tell the story of the journey to environmental stewardship among people of faith.

This is the book that Christians are longing for and need today. Written for a new generation of Christians who are struggling with how to deal with the important issue of creation-care and green living, Green Like God is both highly relevant and theologically sound. It will have a profound impact on how Christians live and interact with the world today.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Merritt’s conversion may not change the world quite as much as [the apostle] Paul’s, but he has changed his classroom epiphany into Topic A within…the biggest Protestant body in the US.”

    Time

  • “Through a compilation of scripture, statistics, and his own anecdotes, Merritt, explains that creation care is a shared moral obligation—not a political viewpoint or a film by Al Gore…Himself a convert to the idea of God as green, Merritt is sure to appeal to the hearts of even the most polarized Christians. His guide could be turned into relevant sermon material and should be mandatory reading for churchgoers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Merritt’s authenticity when he calls himself a ‘recovering antienvironmentalist’ is believable. He speaks with warmth about God, calling him ‘green,’ and he believes that God speaks through nature…Merritt’s faith-driven ideas, cutting-edge theme, and compelling delivery are convincing.”
