God Is Just Love by Ken Whitt

This product was recommended by Susan Stitt from Front Edge Publishing

How can people of faith foster love and resilience in our children while building sustainable, diverse communities? That’s the big question Ken Whitt answers in light of the many threats looming in our world. Through wisdom he has gleaned from scientists, scholars and lots of real families, Ken shows how God’s love is a hopeful compass in our lives. He encourages enjoying stories, songs and explorations of the natural world with children, and closes with 100 Things Families Can Do To Find Hope and Be Love. Because Ken has years of experience working with multi-generational groups, his book encourages reflections and activities with our families that he knows will be both fun and faithful. The cover of his book illustrates a central story he shares about the wonderment families discover when they look up into the starry night sky with their children. Ken Whitt offers care to weary souls in this book. It is not just his words but the spirit that manifests through the words. Ken says that love is at the heart of reality and love is what he gently breathes on us here, Christian ethicist David Gushee, author of *Changing Our Mind, *writes in the book’s Foreword. As you read this wise and joyful book, I know you will feel both instructed and delighted, and you will agree that your life has been enriched by adopting Ken Whitt as a literary pastor, mentor and friend, Brian McLaren, best-selling author of more than 20 books, writes in the Preface. In extensive dialog with scientists and theologians, Ken shows the delightful and enriching complementarity of faith and science. Both can feed us mentally and emotionally, and both are needed to move us in constructive and creative ways in the face of the global perils we face, writes Daniel Buttry, author of Blessed Are the Peacemakers and the former Global Consultant for Peace and Justice of the American Baptist Churches.

How To Give Up Plastic by Will McCallum

This product was recommended by Mark Condon from Shotkit

This book is certainly an eye-opener for us. It talks about the devastating impact of plastic with facts and examples from the past. The first half of the book has cited so many examples of how we are defiling the earth that it has the power to turn anyone into the zero-waste lifestyle. Following that, there are practical tips, on how we can reduce plastic waste, that are very easy to follow. This is certainly a must-read for everyone.

A More Perfect Union by David Gottstein

This product was recommended by Dorene Lorenz from N/A

While most discussions about climate change are filled with gloom and doom, Gottstein’s message is full of hope. He offers practical innovate, common sense, solutions for mitigation of impacts as well as advise on how to turn disadvantages into advantages.

How to Prepare for Climate Change by David Pogue

This product was recommended by Reuben Yonatan from GetVoIP

This book gave me a sense of what to expect as well as what the causes of climate change are, and how we can live our lives to combat them. But what really sets it apart is the advice, on everything from what to invest in, how to build, and even where to locate if the time comes. It won’t give you complete peace of mind—no factual book will—but it’s a fantastic place to look for those who want to prepare.

Storming the Wall by Todd Miller

This product was recommended by Kira Iaryst from Mats and Rugs

I’m suggesting this book because it brings up the problem of climate migrants who are on the frontline of global warming. Todd Miller makes a great analysis of how climate asylum seekers get criminalized by the government, and why solidarity is our only chance to stop climate change as a Humanity. A unique perspective on the dilemmas of policies and social justice. It’s an emotionally challenging read, but highly recommended and absolutely worth it.

Under a White Sky by Elizabeth Kolbert

This product was recommended by Ann Young from Fix The Photo

In this book, Elizabeth Kolbert takes us on a thrilling account of how scientists reached the conclusion that human beings are causing climate change. Pulling back the curtain on their process of discovery, she tells a story full of fascinating characters and dramatic twists and turns. She describes how scientific truth works in our age a period when it is often hard to even know what the truth is. ‘Under a White Sky’ is an enthralling look at the workings of science from one of our greatest writers on nature.
