What if you looked out your window and saw Jesus going through your trash can?
Would that surprise you?
The greatest illusion of our time comes in the form of waste. From landfills, to micro-trash, to invisible emissions, to imperceivable pollutants, to the factories and shores we never see... it's all hidden away from our sight. However, the harmful effects of this global wastefulness reaches far and wide. It's touching the lives of everyone you love, every place you've been, and every single thing you can imagine.
So, what if God is actually very interested in your waste?
What if your faith requires a greater awareness about the things you eat, buy, and throw away?
Could it be that your salvation is tied to all of God's creation and that you have the opportunity to join God's work of restoration?
While addressing the environmental challenges of our time, Garbage Theology seeks to connect our Biblical call to keep and serve creation with how we live our lives today. Through personal stories extracted from years of working in the trash and recycling industry while pastoring a local church, author Caleb Cray Haynes introduces and examines a theology of waste through the lens of Scripture and our story as the people of God in the context of our current global waste emergency.
