Hope in the Age of Climate Change
Creation Care This Side of the Resurrection
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Hope is a commodity in short supply as the world confronts an ever-hotter climate. But Doran supplies some hope in this volume, which is both scientifically sound and theologically inspired. May it lead many to think, and then to act!"
--Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature
". . . Doran creatively draws on the Bible, the church fathers, and modern theologians to develop a thoughtful Christian ethics of creation care. Perhaps his most creative and enduring contributions to the contemporary dialogue on the environment are his discussions of frugality as a Christian virtue and his development of a eucharistic understanding of eating. . . ."
--Ron Highfield, Professor of Religion, Religion and Philosophy Division, Seaver College, Pepperdine University
"Founded squarely on scripture and science, Chris Doran offers a clarion call for a faith-based response to human-caused climate change. Engagingly written and with a hopeful message, Doran's book speaks to the church on one of the fundamental spiritual issues of our time: a steward's role in caring for God's creation."
--Ed Larson, Pepperdine University; Pulitzer Prize-winning historian
