Living Ecological Justice

Living Ecological Justice

Living Ecological Justice - book cover Wondering what on earth we’re doing? Looking for an inspiring, relevant, and practical resource on ecological justice issues?

Living Ecological Justice: A Biblical Response to the Environmental Crisis, explores a wide range of issues with writers from seven Canadian Christian traditions.

The book is organized around three themes:

  • Protecting What We Love – creation advocacy includes protecting the creation that God loves and is making whole through the Spirit’s renewing work in the world as an icon of Christ’s redeeming presence.
  • The Biblical Case for Creation Advocacy – rooted in scripture, creation advocacy unites spirituality with scientific, ecological, and political insight in both an assessment of current challenges and the revelation of hope.
  • Towards Abundant Life for All Creation: Worship, Community, and Action – creation advocacy is a manifestation of God’s work in the world.

CPJ regularly facilitates workshops on faith and creation care, using "Living Ecological Justice." Contact Karri Munn-Venn for more information.

An abbreviated list of resources is included in Living Ecological Justice (pp. 120-121), but there wasn't room for everything. Included here is a more comprehensive list of recommended reading.
