Christianity, Climate Change and Sustainable Living
by Nick Spencer & Robert White
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Published:23 August 2007
Essential reading for any Christian who feels strongly that their discipleship involves a concern to do something about climate change and even more essential reading for those who don’t! This book is so much more than a book of ‘green theology’ and whilst it includes some aspects of environmental theology the theological approach is much wider, drawing on the basics of relational theology and our responsibility to our neighbour and for justice within our world. The detailed science of climate change is explained simply for the lay person; as is the Biblical basis for our need to care for the whole of creation; leading to a final section offering a realistic vision of a world of sustainable living, which provides a better future for us all, and clear recommendations of how we might begin to fulfil that vision.
