New Book, Resisting the Green Dragon: Dominion, Not Death, Now Available
Hot off the press from the Cornwall Alliance is a powerful, well-researched analysis of the contemporary environmental movement. In Resisting the Green Dragon: Dominion, Not Death
, physicist and lay theologian Dr. James A. Wanliss carefully documents the anti-Christian worldview, theology, and ethics of the Green movement.
“Like a lion, the environmental movement has stalked its prey—in this case the Christian church,” says Doug Bandow, author of Beyond Good Intentions: A Biblical View of Politics
. “And many devout Christians have adopted a ‘green’ message in response. But in Resisting the Green Dragon
James Wanliss presents a vision of genuine stewardship, which worships God, places man at the center of creation, and cares for the poor. Wanliss’s fine book warns Christians to avoid all idols, even green ones.”
The 309-page book, including an extensive index to enhance its value for study, has seven chapters:
- Green Dragon: How Environmentalism Gets It Wrong
- The Church Complicit: How Environmentalism Has Penetrated the Church with Anti-Human and Anti-Christian Ideas
- Created in the Image of God: Why Humans Are More Special to God than Other Creatures
- Naked Ape: How Nature Is Not Divine, and Humans Are Spiritually Superior to All Other Creatures
- Dominion: How Humans’ Filling and Ruling the Earth Can Release It from Bondage
- Death Wish: How the “Sustainability” Chimera Is Harmful to the Environment and Politically Dangerous
- Dominion, Not Death: How Environmentalism Harms the Poor and Biblical Christianity Offers the True Hope for the Future
The book is a companion to, but not redundant of, Cornwall Alliance’s twelve-part DVD series Resisting the Green Dragon
“Dr. Wanliss’s book … should be read in depth by all those concerned to maintain biblical religion and a serious respect for God’s creation whilst not falling into the trap of deifying the ecology movement,” says Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, one of the world’s leading Christian apologists, Professor Emeritus of Law and Humanities at the University of Bedfordshire, UK, and Distinguished Research Professor, Patrick Henry College, Virginia.
