Arguing that we are entrapped by our belief that endless material growth and expansion is both possible and fulfilling, McKibben asks, How can one believe deeply in God and yet be so cavalier about God's creation? An environmentalist, Sunday school teacher, and the author of The End of Nature and The Age of Missing Information, McKibben uses the biblical story of Job to articulate modern assumptions that hide us from the larger perspective of God's grand and glorious creation. In the process, he comments on the modern sins of consumerism, overreliance on automobiles, overpopulation, and placing ourselves at the center. His illustrations of how we are creating a managed world that will be even less hospitable to our religious message than the current one are wide-ranging.
