. . . tackles the urgent issues arising from climate change and explores how hidden resources in our religious traditions can guide our responses. Exploring the Bible tradition brings startling and fresh insights on how both Hebrew and Christian writers see God at work in the entire Creation, loving it and holding it in being; while Patristic and later theological thinking affirms how deeply connected we humans are with matter itself, along with all living things, and hence our responsibility to reverence the entire Creation as a part of God's handiwork.

Review:

''Christianity has long been in the green line of fire for fostering the human exceptionalism that has historically legitimated industrial civilization's onslaught upon the Earth. Acknowledging that religion, at least in its culturally dominant formation in the West, has been, and in some cases remains, part of the problem, the varied contributions to this excellent volume nonetheless give grounds for hope that an ecologically renovated Christianity, in consort with other religious traditions, might also become part of the solution. Bringing together perspectives from science, theology, biblical studies, ministry, and the sociology of religion, this collection of incisive and inspiring essays by established and emerging scholars, activists and eco-faith practitioners from Australia and Oceania, demonstrates some of the diverse ways in which religious understandings and practices can contribute towards countering the rampant consumerism fueling social injustice, environmental destruction and global warming, as well as nurturing just and compassionate responses to the dire impacts of those climatic changes that have now become inevitable.''
--Kate Rigby,Professor of Environmental Humanities, Monash University

''Climate Change - Cultural Change is an innovative contribution to the difficult conversation about the implications of climate change, and how to draw from the deep wells in our Scriptures and religious traditions to refine our notions of 'the good life' in which all can share.''
--Bruce Duncan CSsR, Yarra Theological Union, Box Hill VIC

''Climate change is the greatest challenge we face as the global community of life in the twenty-first century. It clearly must be central to the agenda of the churches of Australian and the Pacifica. This rich, diverse, collection of essays leaves the reader with a sense of the Spirit at work stirring Christian communities to action. It is full of Christian hope that can provide the impetus for change at all levels.''
--Denis Edwards, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Theology, Flinders University --Wipf and Stock Publishers
