Books: Bible Readings, Prayers and Poems

God's Green Book by C Sleigh and B Webb

The Bible is bursting with teaching about nature: how God created it, how humans fit into it, and how it is part of his big story of justice, love and redemption. But what does the Bible have to say about the environmental issues that face us? These seven Bible studies explore such questions as: How well rooted are you in God’s creation?; Can you take your ethics to the shops?; Does what you eat really make a difference?; Is an environmentally friendly lifestyle just too painful to contemplate?

 

Beyond The Window Frame - Prayers and Poems, by Marie Birkinshaw
