Together with his wife and two children, he began to bring his lifestyle in line with his values, cutting back on their fossil fuel by two thirds and electricity use by nine tenths. Following a new calling, Dr. Sleeth resigned from his position as chief of the medical staff and director of the ER to teach, preach, and write about faith and the environment throughout the country.
Dr. Sleeth is a graduate of George Washington University School of Medicine and has two post-doctoral fellowships. He is the author of Serve God, Save the Planet: A Christian Call to Action (Zondervan, April 2007), the introduction to the Green Bible (2008, HarperOne), and 24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life.
I would like to thank Matthew for his time today, his book is awesome!! I would recommend his book to everyone struggling with life’s challenges. One of the biggest challenges? Raising Your Kids To Be Good Kids, and having a great relationship with them now and in the future! Remember to do your part in Keeping Our Kids Safe!
