A Climate For Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions

Full Description:

Global warming: it's one of the hottest scientific and political issues of today. And yet we've all found ourselves asking . . .

- It's freezing outside--where's global warming now?
- Climate is always changing--how do we know this isn't just a cycle?
- Why should Christians care about global warming when we know the world won't end that way?

For all the talk about climate change, there's still a great deal of debate about what it all means, especially among Christians. A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE offers straightforward answers to these questions, without the spin. This book untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming. Authored by a climate scientist and a pastor, A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE boldly explores the role our Christian faith can play in guiding our opinions on this important global issue.

My Take on the Book:
For the most part, this was an interesting book. The science behind it is what appealed to me. I rather enjoyed reading about the changes going on our planet. Most of them we all know of, and yes, I do what I can to help lessen my output into the atmosphere. The authors did inspire me to want to do even more. Which is always good. Though at times I really didn't see where "God" fit into the book. The things happening to our world we know is human error. Here is an example from the book to show what I mean, and even better, the book is quoting the Bible....

"For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to any human being" (TNIV). When it comes to climate change, we are the authors. Not God.
~ Page 65

The point is, I was already grabbed by the author upon mentioning global warming. Then bringing a religious aspect into it, without justifying it being there, did nothing to keep my attention. It made me irksome at having to read it, while waiting to read more about our earth.
I do think they wrote truthfully and with great respect. Plus we all need to do more for our environment, so with that I thin everyone should read it. Some of the scientific stats in it will really make you think.

~I did not receive any compensation for this post. This is my honest opinion.~


  1. What attracted me to this one was the idea of looking at it from a Christian viewpoint. Seems a shame that that idea is just more or less tacked on.
