NOTE: In this episode, we erroneously reported that Bill McKibben left 350.org…this is not true! It was an April Fool’s joke that Laura mistook for truth. Please accept our HUGE apology for a news mistake of this magnitude!

“It’s Hot in Here Radio” charts new ter­ri­tory for the program… Today we ask: what does scrip­ture tell us about envi­ron­mental stew­ard­ship? What are the messages fueling faith-​​based approaches to envi­ron­men­talism? Dr. Rolf Bouma joins us in the studio to discuss the inter­sec­tion of envi­ron­mental ethics and religion.
Dr. Rolf Bouma is the Pastor for Academic Ministries at the Campus Chapel and directs the Center for Faith & Scholarship, a Christian study center at the University of Michigan.  He received his Ph.D. from Boston University in the field of Systematic Theology. In addition to thesis work on biotech­nology and a theology of nature, he also has been exten­sively involved in science and religion dialogue.  Rolf teaches envi­ron­mental ethics and envi­ron­mental values/​public policy as part of the University of Michigan’s Program in the Environment. He has taught theology at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Rolf also holds M.Div. and Th.M. degrees from Calvin Theological Seminary and has served con­gre­ga­tions in Grand Rapids (Eastern Avenue CRC) and Boston (Hope CRC, Framingham, MA). He also obtained a J.D. degree from the University of Michigan Law School (1982).
