    Yes, please post the whole lecture! Posting only part of a lecture defeats your purpose for having this site!

    It would be good to see the balance of this lecture. I'm searching for resources that clarify the actual intent of the meaning of Genesis concerning stewardship and dominion. I've long been interested in rebutting the late 1960's environmentalists point of view that it is because of Judeo-Christian roots that our environment and natural resources are being consumed faster than they can replenish.
    Perhaps outspoken Christians have been involved in unapologetic environmental degradation without a restorative follow through, but surely it's not the biblical mandate in Genesis?
    What are the cannon of resources that include Francis Schaefer?
