Introduction -- Climate action is mission -- Christian approaches to climate action -- Listening to context and calling: case study by Mark Coleman -- Listing to context and calling: case study by Grace Thomas -- What next?
Summary: "Environmental concerns have sometimes been viewed as detached from the core mission of the church. Yet as a consequence of systemic injustice, and interwoven with poverty and human need, climate change is an issue of particular relevance to Christians. This guide issues an urgent call for churches to step out and stand alongside people, wherever they might be, to speak up for the Earth as a gift of God, to engage in prophetic activism against unjust structures, and to safeguard the integrity of creation in which in Christ, all is connected."--From the publisher
