The Church and Climate Change

Price per Unit (piece): R50.00 (including 14 % tax)

Ernst Conradie

Global warming and its effects on the climate which will impact every continent and every person, especially Africa and its peoples, has emerged as a key sign of the times of the early 21st century. Thus it is fitting that The Church and Climate Change is the first volume in the Signs of the Times series of Cluster Publications. Ernst Conradie surveys the scientific facts as they are emerging today about the causes and effects of global warming and climate change. He parses the \"church\" into six different dimensions, ranging from the individual believer to denominational structures, and describes the possible responses of each one. A new set of values, which are rooted in the Gospel of Jesus, can give hope and energy for action, the first of which is the need for confession and repentance for what we are doing to the earth, our only home. Christians must gather with all people of good will to discern this sign of the times and act together to save and sustain the earth.

PROFESSOR ERNST M. CONRADIE teaches Systematic Theology and Ethics in the Department of Religion and Theology at the University of the Western Cape. He is the author of: Christianity and ecological theology: Resources for further research (SUN Press, 2006), Hope for the Earth: Vistas on a new century (UWC, 2000 / Wipf & Stock 2005), and An ecological Christian anthropology: At home on earth? (Ashgate, 2005). He is secretary of the Network of Earthkeeping Christian Communities in South Africa and is on the board of the South African Faith Communities\' Environment Institute

Signs of the Times Books: Doing theology in the 21st century demands attention to the most important events, people, and themes of contemporary society. This is the focus of the "Signs of the Times" series. Each title, "The Church and ….", engages in theological reflection and analysis of a significant "sign of the times". Written in a non-academic style, the books present clear interpretations of the response of Christian faith to the world today
