Publishers Description
We are facing planet-sized challenges. Climate change and environmental crises can be pretty immobilizing, and we can fall into the temptation of thinking that we can't make a difference. But it's not just about what we can do on our own to make a difference. It's about what we can do when we mobilize together as a movement and combine for community action. Activist Ben Lowe calls the present generation to come together and care for the earth in a way that recent generations have not. Telling real-life stories of community organizing on college campuses across the nation, Lowe shows us that little things can make a big difference when we all work together. We now have an opportunity to show the world what it looks like when Christians care for the planet God gave us, so that future generations can live sustainably. This is our moment. This is our issue. Come join the green revolution.

More About Ben Lowe, Shane Claiborne & M.D. J. Matthew Sleeth

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Ben Lowe is Director of Young Adult Ministries for the Evangelical Environmental Network, where he promotes creation care as Christian discipleship among various organizations, colleges and universities. Lowe's views on creation care were shaped early in his life. Growing up as a missionary kid in Singapore/Malaysia, he often dealt with water shortages and bad air quality due to mismanagement and abuse of natural resources. Carrying these experiences with him, he eventually found his way to Wheaton College where he majored in environmental studies and helped organize Wheaton's first national Climate Change Summit. His summers were filled working as an environmental educator with the Massachusetts Audubon Society and as a student researcher for fisheries projects in Corpus Christi, TX and on Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania. Lowe lives in the Chicagoland area, where he ran for U.S. Congress in the 2010 election. He previously served as the cocoordinator of Renewal, a grassroots network committed to equipping this student generation in the compassionate stewardship of all of God's creation. He has also served as outreach director for A Rocha USA, an international Christian conservation organization, where he helped to mobilize churches and campuses around creation care issues.

Ben Lowe was born in 1956.

Excellent  Apr 5, 2010
This is a very good book for those interested in even more motivation to care for God's creation. It has many great examples from the author's journey as an up and coming leader in this movement for American Christians. I have hope that more will pick this up and implement best practices from other organizations mentioned in the book in their own settings to create change.
 
Not what I expected  Jan 10, 2010
It could have been my fault for not looking into this book more before I ordered it, but it was not what I expected. Lowe, a Christian college graduate, does a good job of describing many of the experiences he has seen and gone through firsthand pertaining to the environment. If you are interested in eventually making big waves as a Christian environmentalist this book is for you. Lowe describes how best to go about being that change in society, to the point where it gets almost redundant. I felt as if many chapters ended up droning on about either himself or the many Christian colleges making a difference. I understand they are/have the ability to be the young leaders of but there is plenty of other great institutions. To be fair, he does bring a few other colleges and instiutions up but he continually sticks with Christian based ones.

If you, like me, are more looking for a book that helps guide young men and women of faith to be able to really apply eco-friendly practices in their dorm, apt, house, etc. then this book is not for you.
 
Two Green Thumbs Up  Aug 5, 2009
This book is a great testament to how God is bringing his kingdom and restoration to THIS EARTH right now.
 
A Must-Read On Creation Care  Jul 16, 2009
I strongly recommend this book. I really enjoyed learning about the creation care movement through Ben Lowe's expert knowledge of the subject. This book is specific about pratical ways that the reader can make a positive difference in his or her environment. The narrative is filled with real-life examples and applications of the principles that Ben puts forth. While this book is written from a strong Christian perspective, it should be accessible to anyone who wants to learn about enviornmental issues. I really enjoyed reading it, and I think you will too.
 
A must read for all stewards of God's creation  Apr 20, 2009
Ben Lowe is putting an end to the idea that environmentalism is just a secular issue. "Green Revolution" gives us a much needed reminder of the Christian responsibility to be active stewards of creation. I recently read this book with a group of college students and found it stimulating, challenging, and motivating. The balance of scientific information and personal narrative make this a very readable book. I highly recommend reading "Green Revolution".
