Publisher's Description

The Transition Town Movement is a fast growing social movement with hundreds of local groups which aims to prepare communities for the impact of peak oil and climate change. Many Christians are involved already, but this is the first book to equip local churches to engage with the movement towards greater simplicity.

It provides:

• the main tenets of Transition
• a theological vision of the Church as a Transition movement by showing the commonalities that already exist
• signs that the movement is grounded in the visionary and prophetic
• examples of green Church initiatives and Transition projects
• suggestions of how to incorporate Transition ideas into worship and pastoral practice and policy
• ways to build bridges and partnerships between church communities and Transition communities

Editorial Reviews

‘This book … shows why a world view inspired by Jesus, child of both God and the earth, encourages us all to be in transition and make good the earth for God.’
