What the Bible says about taking care of the earth. From extreme weather events to oil spills to climate change, Planet Earth is in the news. What does this mean for Christians and how does it impact the life of faith?
Green Church answers these questions in ways both hopeful and engaging. Citing both Scripture and science, Rebekah Simon-Peter weaves together personal stories of Sabbath, gardening, recycling, mentoring, and the power of faith. She challenges us to consider our role in the care of creation and to help steward the earth for future generations. Includes Green Facts, Spotlight on Science and Greening the Church follow up steps. Use as a stand-alone book, small group selection or as part of a church wide campaign.
You can study the book by yourself or get a small group together at your church and work through the book together using the Green Church Leader Guide. Use the resources for Children and Youth at the same time for a churchwide study.
Whether reading the book on your own or participating in a study, don't forget to get a copy of 7 Simple Steps to Green Your Church, which will show you how to implement a green plan at your church.

"What a remarkable Book! Green Church is the most direct, attractive, and no-nonsense argument I have yet seen for the holy obligations to Christian greennes. This and its companion volume, 7 Simple Steps to Green Your Church, should be 'must reads' for every church in North America." ~ Phillis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why
