What should Christians do to protect the Earth and its people?

Amounts and patterns of consumption and production in the West have reached a level that cannot be maintained. Lifestyles based on our present way of creating and using energy are no longer environmentally sustainable--and are threatening the health and well-being of both planet and people. Our activities and the policies that shape them need to change. In light of those realities, Spencer, White, and Vroblesky offer serious Christian engagement with the emerging issue of Sustainable Consumption and Production. They analyze the scientific, sociological, economic, and theological thinking that makes a Christian response to these trends imperative and distinctive. And they offer practical conclusions that explore and explain what can be done at the personal, community, national, and international levels to ensure that next generations will have the resources necessary for life.

Firmly rooted in the good news of the Christian faith, this is, above all, a constructive and hopeful book that offers a realistic vision of what the future could and should look like.

Review Text

  • By W. Hunter on December 16, 2013

    This book is rich in scripture references , both Old and New Testament. It also addresses some specifics about how we make the problem worse without thinking. It points out that often we talk like we understand and then go out to the mall it buy things we don't need. We try to live sustainable at home but then take the big trips overseas. There are many very insightful comments tucked away in this book. Very well done.
