In the face of climate change and other environmental trends, it is easy to be pessimistic about the future. Philosophers, film-makers, environmentalists, politicians and even senior scientists increasingly resort to apocalyptic rhetoric to warn us that a so-called 'perfect storm' of factors are coming together in a way that threatens the future of life on earth.

[I]f the Christian gospel fundamentally reorientates us in our relationship with God and his world, then there ought to be something radically distinctive about our attitude and approach to such threats. Moo and White therefore reflect on just what difference the Bible's vision of the future of all of creation makes to how we live now and respond to the challenges facing life on earth.

Review:

This powerful book is full of godly wisdom. Jonathan Moo and Robert White have given us an authoritative account of the current scientific data together with an inspirational review of a wide range of profound biblical resources. It is truly important reading for anyone seeking for hope in our troubled environmental times. --Peter Harris, A Rocha

The authors give a careful and comprehensive scientific analysis of contemporary threats to the environment, such as those posed by climate change. To this they add an extensive discussion of biblical material relating to human hope and responsibility. Many Christians will find this book a helpful approach to serious problems of our age. --Revd Dr John Polkinghorne, KBE, FRS
