#850- Should Christians Care for the Environment? Dr. Sandy Richter

Preston Sprinkle

Theology in the Raw

Dr. Sandy Richter is one of my favorite–and one of the most provocative–biblical scholars, and she comes back on Theology in the Raw for the second time in 10 months to help us think through this important question: should Christian care for the environment?

The answer, of course–if you read the Bible–is yes. But why are so many Christians resistant to this question? (Pssst…it’s because we’re often shaped more by American political tribal identities than the actual Bible.) We also wrestle with questions like: What age will we be in the resurrection? Will animals be resurrected in the new creation? And why won’t there be marriage in the resurrection?
