An introduction for busy, ordinary Christians about a right attitude to present problems of the environment, including climate change. This explains why Christians ought to be concerned with the environment, and why the church should be taking the lead. This book deals with why environmental questions should be tackled and looks at three major issues we face today: pollution, devastation and climate change . Each of these is explained simply and some practical, common-sense suggestions are given. The book goes on to look at the attitudes we should have as Christians and spells out what action the should lead us to. They include recognition that the Earth is not ours but God's: questions of stewardship: and the big challenge of mission. 'This is a timely book and I thoroughly recommend it.' 'highly recommended to anyone inhabiting this beautiful planet God has made for us, and especially to those who are concerned about our world and interested in exploring what the correct Christian response to climate change, pollution and devastation should be.'
