Our world is not as it was created to be; from environmental decay, suffering, and political extremism, to conflict, poverty, and social and economic instability. But God is calling us, the church, to respond to this!
This book tells you why, shows you how, and gives you hope that you can make a world of difference. It includes solid, biblical teaching on key topics – such as the climate and nature emergencies – and offers a theology of justice. It is complete with carefully crafted discussion questions for one person or a small group to use.
The book is divided into three sections:
- Section 1: We live in interesting times
- Section 2: The Bible’s big story
- Section 3: What this means for the church
Making A World of Difference was produced by Renew Our World, a global movement of Christians – including Tearfund – who work towards a more fair and sustainable world. The lead author is Revd Dr Dave Bookless, Director of Theology for A Rocha International, Catalyst for Creation Care for the Lausanne Movement, and a Board member for Renew Our World. The book has been informed, shaped and revised by Christians from different denominations and continents across the world.
