Ecological problems - drought, global warming, pollution, resources - are headline news. Green movements tend to stress pessimistic outcomes. Anxiety is reasonable, but the Christian response should draw upon the concern of God for his creation. Christians are starting to contribute to the debate, and have a vital specific insight: the Christian message of hope. The Hodsons show how Christians can make a contribution to community life and take the lead in raising awareness, developing recycling, reducing waste and energy use, and encouraging local church-based environmental initiatives.
