Summary: "Preeeeep." The sound of the peepers, tiny frogs an inch or two long, penetrated the dusk. Beneath the jack pines at the edge of a small pond in the northern Michigan woods, the males were calling their mates. A professor and a group of ecology students sat speechless as closer and closer, louder and louder, more and more peepers joined in chorus.

"There was just light enough to see them, crawling up a bracken fern to find a singing perch, fi
lling their throats with air like tiny balloons about to burst and then giving forth at close range an ear-splitting 'preeeeep.' . . . Now we were immersed in the peepers' lives, not ours. And when the concert ended and the peepers had gone away, we laughed together for the sheer joy and power of life displayed for a moment in the grand efforts of one tiny creature to be fruitful and multiply."

Combining compelling stories with both biblical and scientific investigation, Redeeming Creation addresses the ecological crisis we face today. population explosion
rain forests stripped bare
destruction of animal habitat
the death of entire species
depletion of the ozone layer
global warming
The authors, four biologists and teachers, believe that we can face these dilemmas with hope. Moving beyond a mere survey of the planet's ills, they bring Scripture into fruitful dialogue with current scientific findings and commitments. They both inspire and inform our individual and corporate response to God's creation.
