Christian Living Doesnt Cost the Earth - New Edition

by Ruth Valerio


Price: £7.99
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
Review of first edition -
Full marks to whoever chose the title. Whichever way you read it, the title describes the help and advice in this book exactly. The author works through the alphabet with chapters such as A for Activist, B for Bananas and so on. Each chapter ends with Action Points, Good Contacts and Good Books for each subject. Ruth Valerio is passionate about the environment and our responsibilities as Christians. She is also practical. She doesnt demand that we change our lives completely in one grand action, but that we make small and manageable changes, and then when they become our natural way of doing things, take another step. A very readable and worthwhile book that I plan to heed and try to do as she suggests.

In the introduction to this new edition, Ruth Valerio explains that in the four years since the first edition, climate change has become recognised throughout the world and the need for changes to our lifestyles is universally recognised. This is reflected in this revised and expanded update.
