Time to Act: A Resource Book by the Christians in Extinction Rebellion - Jeremy Williams
‘The climate crisis is the biggest issue facing humanity today. . . It is only together that we can make a difference.’
Amanda Khozi Mukwashi, Christian Aid
Written by members and friends of Christian Climate Action, this stimulating resource book sets out the moral and religious case for joining the struggle against climate change. It reflects on the Christian tradition of non-violent direct action, and offers deeply moving testimonies by those engaged in such protests today, along with powerful sermons, prayers, liturgies and other spiritual resources.
Now is the time to act! Don’t let it pass you by!
‘This is a landmark book. It is nothing short of an invitation to join the holy uprising of people sweeping the globe who will not be silent in the face of the destruction of God’s earth.’
Shane Claiborne, Red Letter Christians
