Description

Environmental issues, and climate change in particular, provoke intense debate and discussion all around the world, with a whole range of opinions over their priority and what action should be taken. How should Christians respond?

This short, thought-provoking book helps readers to think about the key issues surrounding the environment and climate change through the lens of Scripture.

Author Dave Gobbett traces the he significance of the earth in the Bible's big story, from creation to new creation, and explores what our God-given responsibilities are. He suggests a range of practical responses that Christians can consider.

Talking Points is a series of short books designed to help Christians think, talk and relate to others with compassion, conviction and wisdom about culturally relevant, controversial issues.

This book will equip readers to have godly discussions about an issue which is often of particular concern to the younger generation. There is a discussion guide in the back making it a great resource for small groups or whole churches to read together, especially in the run-up to the COP27 conference. Ministry packs are available.

Sam Allberry

Pastor, apologist, speaker and author of a number of books, including Is God Anti-Gay?

We can’t claim to follow Jesus while being indifferent to what he has made. This excellent book gets right to the heart of what the Bible says about the physical world around us. Insightful, vital and inspiring.

Dan Strange

Director, Crosslands Forum

In this engaging little introduction, Dave is able to bring both a passion and a sanity that I hope will motivate Christian disciples to think more, say more, and do more when it comes to our environment which, of course, is not ours, but God’s.

Senior pastor, Eden baptist church Cambridge

A really helpful little book on a really important topic.

“interesting”

I was interested in this book as I haven't seen any others like it. The discussion of environmental issues has been prevalent in the last several years and continues to rise with urgency. But I have never heard anyone speak or read any books that related the environmental concerns through a Biblical lens.

Gobbett is straightforward from the start, stating that the book is not all encompassing, but rather a summary of talking points that will help discussion and further thinking about the topics.

He structures the book with four very simple chapters:

- Greeting Greta

- My Father's World

- Kings and queens of Narnia

- Tomorrow never dies

Gobbett approaches the subject of environment through biblical doctrines such as creation, sin, humanity, redemption, the end times and the end of the church. He doesn't provide the answers that some may be searching for in regards to environmental issues. Rather, he provides a biblical context and lens for us to address those questions.

It was all very interesting to read through and forced further discussion and pondering beyond the book itself.

The book concludes with both a chapter addressing the applicability in our daily lives and a discussion guide for groups.

I received a copy of this book from The Good Book Company in exchange for an honest review.
