Sharon Delgado’s new book, Love in a Time of Climate Change: Honoring Creation, Establishing Justice, challenges readers to develop a faithful response to climate change, which disproportionately harms the poor, threatens future generations, and damages God’s creation. This book creatively uses scripture, tradition, reason, and experience to explore the themes of creation and justice in the context of climate change. Its premise is that love of God and neighbor requires us to honor creation and establish justice for our human family, for future generations, and for all creation. Order from your local independent bookstore, from Fortress Press, or from Amazon.com, or contact Sharon for bulk and signed copies.
