David Neff, editor in chief and vice president of editorial for the Christianity Today Media Group, will speak for the Longo Lecture at Pacific Union College on January 28. Neff will lecture on "Earth Day and the New Earth: Is creation care in competition with second-coming Christianity?" He will investigate questions about a Christian approach to environmental responsibility and activism that can affirm both care for the present earth and anticipation of the earth made new.

Neff has worked at Christianity Today International for almost 25 years, where he has guided the editorial process for Christianity Today, Books & Culture, and Christian History magazines. During this editorial career, he has written articles on a wide variety of topics, including climate change, Middle East politics, the American presidency and the rule of law, and the church fathers' approach to the Bible.

In addition to his publishing work, Mr. Neff has worked with Northern Baptist Seminary to establish the Robert E. Webber Center for an Ancient-Evangelical Future. Before coming to Christianity Today, Mr. Neff edited InterVarsity Christian Fellowship's magazine for university students and was a pastor and religion teacher at Walla Walla College.

The Longo Lecture Series brings major figures to PUC to speak on topics related to religion, society and learning. The series has been entitled, "Faith, Knowledge, and Human Values."

The lecture will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 28. It will take place in the Pacific Union College Church at 10 Angwin Avenue in Angwin. Signage will direct visitors to parking and the lecture, and there is no admission fee. For more information, call 707-965-6303.
