The introduction provides the context, rationale, and methodology for the author’s journey across the country to document how people of faith are integrating the environment into their ministries. This chapter summarizes the history and growth of the religious environmental movement in the United States as a foundation for the stories in this book. The author conducted interviews and focus groups at eight different sites across the country, representing a diversity of Christian denominations, geographic locations, and ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. The findings reveal natural saints, people expressing God’s love through stewardship of the earth.

Keywords:   Christian, faith, interviews, religious environmental movement, saints, stewardship
