Reviews

Bianchi artfully blends a Christian outlook with a quest to live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle.
While unabashedly focused on saving the world as part of God’s plan, she realizes it will take a lot of
practical choices to accomplish that goal. So while she does credit her faith for much of her determination,
she also notes that combating global warming so that the onslaught of the Mountain Pine Beetle will be
halted is a worthy achievement anyone can appreciate. Bianchi doesn’t make suggestions about specific
products so much as point out the connections between our choices and some very dire ramifications. “It’s
all hooked up,” she writes, and then draws a line from fewer scallops on her plate to the increase in
predatory cownose rays that are booming due to the overfishing of sharks. Bianchi avers that convenience
must not be the choice of those truly committed to their faith, family, and environment. Hip, funny, and
earnest without being preachy, Bianchi is an environmentally focused author. Fox News fans, among many
others, will easily embrace

Writer and speaker Bianchi does what few evangelicals have the courage or social insight to accomplish, treading fearlessly into the minefields of discord between those Christians who go enthusiastically green in their habits and philosophical leanings, and those who do not. The author presents a compelling argument for prudently using (and not simply wasting) everything from water to electricity to foodstuffs. Bianchi shares her personal story of becoming a 'green mama' with eloquence and gently calls others to do likewise, making small but significant choices as outward expression of faith, trust, and selflessness. The author also offers plenty of practical 'Green Steps' and 'Eco-Examen' questions in every chapter for daily application. Readers will not be guilt-tripped into accommodating Bianchi's ardent desire to save the planet, but will instead find themselves compelled to rethink their lifestyle with a more environmentally friendly eye.
