About this item

How can we proclaim justice for God's Creation in the face of global warming? How does fracking fit with "the earth and its fullness are the Lord's?" Creation-Crisis Preaching works with the premise that all of Creation, including humankind, needs to hear the Good News of Jesus' resurrection in this age in which humanity is "crucifying" Creation. Informed by years of experience as an environmental activist and minister, Leah Schade equips preachers to interpret the Bible through a "green" lens, become rooted in environmental theology, and learn how to understand their preaching context in terms of the particular political, cultural, and biotic setting of their congregation. Creation-Crisis Preaching provides both theoretical grounding and practical tips for preachers to create environmental sermons that are relevant, courageous, creative, pastoral, and inspiring.
Creation-Crisis Preaching equips preachers and activists to stand at the crossroads of church and society where they can weave a prophetic and pastoral voice that speaks to the ecological crises of our time. The discipline of homiletics will be enriched and better equipped to speak to the contemporary questions of the ecological crisis by focusing on environmental justice issues, particularly those involving women and the issue of shale gas drilling (fracking). Pastors and activists will learn how to create messages that address environmental issues with forthrightness and imagination.
