Reviews

Christianity is a planetary religion; the climate crisis is a planetary threat. In this essential volume, theologians and scientists work with care and with passion to see how the former might help solve the latter. Since nothing has ever more comprehensively challenged the Gospel commandment to care for the least among us, no analysis could be more necessary than this! * Bill McKibben, Middlebury College, USA *
This book is a remarkable achievement as it sets in motion a creative dialogue among and between Christians around climate change challenges. It does this within a context of acknowledging the role of science, policy, economics, and the arts. There is no book like it and it will remain a leading source of thinking and transformation for Christians for years to come. * Mary Evelyn Tucker, Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, USA *
The urgency for everyone to do something to mitigate and help adapt to climate change makes the T&T Handbook on Christian Theology and Climate Change of immense value. I find the handbook to be a very comprehensive and creative conversation on a pilgrimage of justice and peace. Although the main essays are written by multi-discipline scholars and theologians who are predominantly from and for the North Atlantic contexts, the rich responses from other parts of the world bring cultural, racial and gender diversity to the conversation on Christian Theology and climate change. I see this handbook to be of great value to students, teachers and any study group within and beyond North Atlantic contexts who are interested in understanding the role of Christian Theology in mitigating and adapting to climate change. It is thought provoking and requires more responses from the readers. * Isabel Apawo Phiri, University of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa *
