A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions

A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Global warming: it's one of the hottest scientific and political issues of today. And yet we've all found ourselves asking . . .

- It's freezing outside--where's global warming now?

- Climate is always changing--how do we know this isn't just a cycle?

- Why should Christians care about global warming when we know the world won't end that way?

For all the talk about climate change, there's still a great deal of debate about what it all means, especially among Christians. A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE offers straightforward answers to these questions, without the spin. This book untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming. Authored by a climate scientist and a pastor, A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE boldly explores the role our Christian faith can play in guiding our opinions on this important global issue.

Synopsis:

A climate scientist and a pastor untangle complex science and tackle many long-held misconceptions about global warming as they explore the role Christian faith can play in guiding opinions on this important issue.

Synopsis:

Most Christian lifestyle or environmental books focus on how to live in a sustainable and conservational manner. A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE shows why Christians should be living that way. Drawing on the two authors' experiences, one as an internationally recognized, Nobel Prize winning climate scientist and the other as an evangelical leader of a growing church, this book explains the science underlying global warming, the impact human activities have on it, and how our Christian faith should play a significant role in guiding our opinions and actions on this important issue.
