This book encourages Christians to play their part in helping to stop climate change. Aiming to counter the idea that stark warnings on the state of the environment seem too colossal for individuals to make any real difference, it argues that Christians not only can have an impact by adapting their lifestyle, but actually have a moral duty to do so.
