'The climate crisis is the biggest issue facing humanity today. . . It is only together that we can make a difference.' Amanda Khozi Mukwashi, Christian Aid Written by members and friends of Christian Climate Action, this stimulating resource book sets out the moral and religious case for joining the struggle against climate change. It reflects on the Christian tradition of non-violent direct action, and offers deeply moving testimonies by those engaged in such protests today, along with powerful sermons, prayers, liturgies and other spiritual resources. Now is the time to act! Don't let it pass you by! 'This is a landmark book. It is nothing short of an invitation to join the holy uprising of people sweeping the globe who will not be silent in the face of the destruction of God's earth.' Shane Claiborne, Red Letter Christians
In a remarkably short space of time, Extinction Rebellion have fundamentally altered the public discourse on climate change. * Tank Magazine * Christians are called by God to show to the world what the divine image looks like - the image of a divine creator who brought the world to birth, called it good, and summoned human beings to reflect this divine care and delight through their own work in the world, animated by the gift of Christ's Spirit. This timely, moving and highly motivating book will help Christians of all ages to respond faithfully to that summons and grow more fully into the joyful responsibility we are made for. * Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge * You'd think that those who commune daily with the Creator of the universe would be most aghast by the devastation of the creation, but that hasn't always been the case. Sometimes Christians have invalidated environmental activism because our theology has been exclusively concerned with going to heaven rather than restoring the earth. Here is some really good news. This is a landmark book in the movement of Christians who care deeply about the earth. It is nothing short of an invitation to join the holy uprising of people sweeping the globe who will not be silent in the face of the destruction of God's earth. * Shane Claiborne, author, activist and leader of Red Letter Christians * The climate crisis is the biggest issue facing humanity today and it is unjust that those least responsible for causing it are facing its full effects. The scale of the emergency facing our world demands a just response from every one of us. I am delighted to see this important coming together of people of faith passionate about engaging their heads, hearts and hands in meeting this crisis. It is only together that we can make a difference. * Amanda Khozi Mukwashi, CEO of Christian Aid *
