Green Church answers these questions in ways both hopeful and engaging. Citing both Scripture and science, Rebekah Simon-Peter weaves together personal stories of Sabbath, gardening, recycling, mentoring, and the power of faith. She challenges us to consider our role in the care of creation and to help steward the earth for future generations.

"What a remarkable Book! Green Church is the most direct, attractive, and no-nonsense argument I have yet seen for the holy obligations to Christian greennes. This and its companion volume, 7 Simple Steps to Green Your Church, should be 'must reads' for every church in North America." ~ Phillis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why
