Evangelicals and Creation Care
In a culture that is deeply concerned about environmental issues, what role should evangelicals have when it comes to creation care? Why should we care for creation, and why should we talk about creation care? How can we use Scripture to address creation care? And how can we thoughtfully consider and address Bible passages that suggest the earth will burn up and be destroyed? Join us as Dr. Douglas Moo, the author of Creation Care: A Biblical Theology of the Natural World (with Jonathan Moo: Zondervan, 2018) and professor of Biblical Studies at Wheaton College, explores this challenging topic.
- Date: Wednesday, June 7
- Time: 6:30pm – 8pm
- Location: Denver Seminary Campus
