In chapter 5, Shaeffer states how Christianity should address environmental issues:

What we

should have, individually and corporately, is a situation where, on the basis of the work of Christ, Christianity is seen to be not just pie in the sky, but something that has in it the possibility of substantial healings now in every area where there are divisions because of the fall. First of all, my division from God is healed by justification, but then there must be the existential reality of this moment by moment. Second, there is the psychological division of man from himself. Third, the sociological divisions of man from other men. And last, the division of man from nature, and nature from nature. In all of these areas we should do what we can to bring forth substantial healing.1

Formulate your personal philosophy of how Christians should Biblically respond to environmental issues.
