Recent years have seen a shift in the belief that a religious world-view, specifically a Christian one, precludes a commitment to environmentalism. Whether as "stewards of God's creation" or champions of "environmental justice," church members have increasingly found that a strong pro-ecology stand on environmental issues is an integral component of their faith. But not all Christian denominations are latecomers to the issue of environmentalism. In "Creation and the Environment," the first book on this subject supported and produced by the Mennonite church, Calvin Redekop and his coauthors explain the unique environmental position of the Anabaptists.

In rural Amish and Mennonite communities, the authors explain, the environment - especially the land - is considered part of the Kingdom that God will establish on Earth. Creation and human history are thus seen as completely interdependent.
