I was delighted to meet Jim Ball and discuss with him and others the Bible s message about God s care for the whole creation, and our part in that great work. Jim has taken a courageous stand in explaining and exploring the way in which the current crisis of a changing climate has to be taken seriously by all Christians who live under God s word. I am delighted to see this book as one further step along a transformative road. --Bishop Tom Wright, Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, University of St Andrews
Addressing energy security is essential for maintaining the well-being of our families and nation. In his book my friend Jim Ball discusses how we can make that happen by focusing on clean sources of energy. Highly recommended. --Roberta Combs President, Christian Coalition of America
My friend Jim Ball has been at the forefront of climate change for nearly two decades, helping to show Christians the way, especially in the area of climate policy. And now he has added to that a book also filled with biblical and spiritual resources to help encourage and sustain us as we fight the good fight. Global warming is a huge challenge, but Jim reminds us that it is the Risen LORD in whom we put our hope. Essential biblical analysis for a troubled planet. An extraordinary accomplishment! --The Rev. Richard Cizik, President and Founder, The New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good
