Pollution and the Death of Man by Francis Schaeffer

Talk about a change of scenery from my last review. You can buy or learn more about this book here.

Rating: [3/5]

Summary: Pollution and the Death of Man is a response to several essays written by ecologists in which they state that Christianity is the primary cause of the destruction of nature. This book addresses that misconception in great detail and also refutes the idea that pantheism would be a more nature-friendly worldview. Pollution and the Death of Man also explains the real Christian view of nature and admonishes Christians to consciously live out that view.

Likes: I really enjoyed Pollution and the Death of Man. I thought it gave an interesting perspective to a very relevant issue, as well as being fairly concise and engaging for a nonfiction book. Schaeffer presented his argument well and had a lot of evidence to back up his claims.

Dislikes: The only thing I didn’t like about Pollution and the Death of Man was the last chapter, which was written by a different author. It was written at a later time than the rest of the book and was intended to show how things have changed in the fight to save the environment. However, I felt that its inclusion was unnecessary because it didn’t contain much new information.

TL;DR: I would definitely recommend Pollution and the Death of Man to anyone who is interested in ecology or who might be looking for different perspectives concerning environmental issues.
