This guide outlines fifty ways in which you, your congregation, and your local community can help fight global warming and enjoy participation in a vital part of Christian discipleship. 50 Ways to Help Save the Earth makes a clear connection, in a practical and unintimidating way, between stewardship of the earth and living one's faith.

This easy-to-follow book consists of seven chapters on topics related to global climate change: "Water," "Energy," "Transportation," "Food and Agriculture," "People," "Other Species," and "Wilderness and Land." Each chapter begins with a statement on how the content relates to global warming, followed by seven action items ranging from individual efforts to activities that encourage the involvement of the congregational and wider communities.

About the Author:

Rebecca Barnes-Davies is an environmental activist with over a decade of experience in advocating for public policy changes, educating groups of concerned Christians, and writing numerous articles. She is a consultant for Environmental and Social Justice Ministries and also served as the Director of Presbyterians Restoring Creation. She is currently studying at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

From Publishers Weekly:

In a slim handbook, Barnes-Davies, former director of Presbyterians Restoring Creation, gives readers real world, practical tips and encouragement for putting their faith into action as responsible stewards of GodÖs creation. The bookÖs organization (seven chapters with seven sections each and a culminating 50th item) reflects the Jubilee in Leviticus, which the author interprets as a mandate to care for the environment as a way of caring for others. Each of the 50 useful suggestions includes brief description of a specific action serving the environment, followed by half a dozen or so how-tos and a blurb about a particular group that is walking the talk. But itÖs not all hard work for change. The seventh item in each chapter directs readers to slow down, relax and enjoy intentional Sabbath moments. The clear and practical advice is a welcome addition to the increasing awareness among faith communities that environmental issues are religious, too. (June)
