Serve God, Save the Planet: A Christian Call to Action
-J. Matthew Sleeth, M.D.
"This is a well-written personal testimony of a doctor's change of his lifestyle  to live more in harmony with creation. It is written from the personal perspective of evangelical Christianity, but in a way that is accessible for people of various faith traditions. In the book he challenges certain evangelical assumptions about God and humanity's relation to creation, insisting that the Biblical mandate is to be good stewards of a good gift. He also writes powerfully about the impact of environmental degradation on the poor. Additionally, he writes about lifestyle changes that he, his wife and his two children have made. I highly recommend this book."
-Paul Slentz, Pastor, 61st Avenue United Methodist Church of Nashville, TN
