We have been shockingly bad at using our Bibles and our brains when it comes to conservation and the environment. Unhinged environmentalism is not the answer, but neither are ignorance and apathy. It’s time for something different.

Look Inside the Book | Goodreads Reviews | Listen on Canon+

Christian responsibility for the natural world goes back to the very beginning, when God commanded us to “fill the earth and subdue it.” This Dominion Mandate is an authoritative alternative to both environmental activists and to those who think “conservation” is a word progressives made up.

So what does “dominion” mean for us, living in a world of constant reports about impending global meltdown; of oils spills, pollution, and strip-mining; of extinction threats both real and imagined? A Different Shade of Green contains a compelling Christian approach to biodiversity conservation and other environmental issues, offering solutions and correcting errors while teaching us how to give thanks for and rule over all of creation.

What People Are Saying:

"Gordon Wilson leads us on an expedition through the tangles of environmentalism. Being lost in these woods can cause frustration and confusion. Gordon reminds us that with the proper compass, it is possible to discover the heart of God and distinguish the forest from the trees. By journey’s end, we are back on the trail and discovering the beauty and purposes of the Creator and the joy of stewarding His world. I look forward to letting my ecology students begin this quest for themselves." -Thomas D. Hennigan, Associate Professor of Ecology and Organism Biology at Truett McConnell University

"This book is another aspect of the life of Gordon Wilson, the part where he ponders big issues and communicates his conclusions in down-to-earth images.... I hope you enjoy his thoughts and conversation as much as I do." -N.D. Wilson, writer and director of The Riot and the Dance

"A Different Shade of Green contains a compelling Christian approach to biodiversity, life cycles, and the environment, offering solutions and correcting errors while teaching us how to give thanks for and responsibly rule over all of creation." -Answers in Genesis

A Different Shade of Green: A Biblical Approach to Environmentalism and the Dominion Mandate

Excellent points from a biblical worldview!

Good Intro, Good Resources

Really good intro with a reliable author. Pairs nicely with Sandra L. Richter's "Stewards of Eden". Dr. Wilson gives a good overview with authors to follow up with. The chapters provide good starting off points for deeper study. Dr. Wilson gives a credible alternative to brash secular environmentalism. This is not a full throated biblical theology and it is not a scientific refutation, it is a book oriented for individuals curious about the dominion mandates expectations for conservation and would make a good book to give to your skeptical uncle.

Wonderful primer on Biblical dominion and how it should lead Christians to love God's creation as they love Him.

What I have been missing my whole life😊

My whole life I have been considering the balance between "environmentalism" and godly dominion and everywhere I turned seemed to find extremes. This book put into words what I have been longing to hear from a scientist who loves God. Wilson answered so many questions I have been asking from the time I was a little girl. Now my 8 year old who wants to be a zoologist is asking me some of those same questions and I at least feel like I have something to reference that is in line with God's Word and not just reacting against environmentalism.
