Behold the Earth looks at the Christian community’s response to environmental issues, most notably climate change.With talking head commentary from scientists such as E.O. Wilson, Cal DeWitt, and Theo Colbornand activists/observers such as Katharine Hayhoe, Ben Lowe, and Corina Newsomethe production is a call to the Christian Community to get on the bandwagon and be proper stewards of the Creation. Interspersedbetween commentaries, views of nature, and the commentators interacting with nature are rather nice performances of hymns from the first half of the nineteenth century.
The sound and picture quality are excellent.
