Environmental sustainability is a major issue in society today. While Christian response was generally slow in the 1980s and '90s, concern has grown rapidly in the 21st century across the church. In this book, two environmental experts consider eight of the key contemporary issues, offering eco-tips to enable practical response, as well as Bible-based reflections to deepen understanding. Among the issues covered are climate change, food, biodiversity and population, and the relationship between environmental problems and issues relating to world development. 'We belong to a human community which must come to terms with new ways of living: extremely rapid environmental changes now impact us ever more directly, and this book is a comprehensive guide to some of the ways forward we must take. It is accessible, practical, even hopeful, and its biblical wisdom means it is indeed a Christian guide to environmental issues.' Peter Harris, Founder of A Rocha 'This book looks straight in the eye of the most serious set of environmental challenges humanity faces.
Drawing together in accessible ways scientific evidence, biblical reflection and practical ideas, it will provoke you to think, act and pray for the renewal of creation.' The Rt Revd Graham Usher, Bishop of Dudley
