Our Chelsea Green Authors : J. Matthew Sleeth, MD

J. Matthew Sleeth, MD

Five years ago, J. Matthew Sleeth M.D. and his family lived in a big house on the coast of Maine. They had two luxury cars, two incomes, and too much stuff. As chief of the medical staff and director of the emergency department at one of the nicest hospitals in America, Dr. Sleeth was living out the American dream. Then he realized that something was terribly wrong. He began to feel like he was straightening deck chairs on the Titanic while the whole ship was going down. That's when he turned to the Bible and discovered some eternal truths.

The Sleeths have since sold their big home and given away more than half of what they owned. They now live in a house that has the same footprint as their old garage. They drive a hybrid car and use one-quarter of the electricity and one-third of the fossil fuels that they used to. They don't own a clothes dryer, dishwasher, garbage disposal, or garage. They've gone from a manicured mono-culture lawn to an organic garden and half an acre of native wild flowers.

Dr. Sleeth lectures, writes, and preaches about Christianity and Creation Stewardship. He is a graduate of George Washington University School of Medicine and has two post doctoral fellowships. Dr. Sleeth has been a member of the American Academy of Family Practice, the College of Emergency Physicians, and the College of Executive Physicians. Serve God, Save the Planet is his first book.
