On Climate & Faith

Unveiling the Theological Basis of Earth Keeping & Climate Justice with Dr. A.J. Swoboda

September 9, 2018

"Creation just screams God's beauty. Nature is God's ultimate love letter to humanity." If we destroy creation, we destroy one of the most beautiful signs of who God is, argues Dr. A.J. Swoboda, professor, author of Evangelical Ecotheology, and pastor of Theophilus in urban Portland, Oregon.

Breaking the silence on the theological basis for earth keeping in the American church, Dr. Swoboda draws upon the bible and history to demonstrate how caring for creation is an act of worship of our Savior., Jesus Christ. In this interview, Dr. Swoboda shows us how the existence of climate change is actually a symptom of a deeper spiritual issue—sin—and how the gospel offers us the tools to meet the biggest ecological challenges of our time with hope, grace, and courage.
