Having a hard time with the idea that human beings were created to “subdue and have dominion” over this planet? Jurovics brings together religious and scientific perspectives, offering an accessible theology of caring for creation in ways that demonstrate love of God and neighbor. Read and act on his concrete and urgent plan for an Environmental Rights Movement.

Churches can massively reduce their impact on God’s good earth if they understand the Bible’s mandate to care for creation and develop practical skills to decrease their energy use. This book hits the target directly on both counts.

“As a pastor for 30 years, a psychologist, and a civil rights activist for 55 years I am convinced that Hospitable Planet has provided a powerful objective strategy for why we all must work together (i.e. science, faith, business, politicians, community folks) to ensure that climate change, global warming, and environmental justice are the civil rights issues for this century. Read this book. Share its message. Now – get involved!! We can and must make the difference!!”

Gerald Durley
Pastor Emeritus – Providence Missionary Baptist Church Atlanta, Georgia

“Stephen Jurovics’ book is an important work of witness: faith and connection to God should lead us to save and heal our planet from a looming environmental catastrophe. Based primarily on the Five Books of Moses, sacred to both Christians and Jews, this book is written with passion, wisdom, and intelligence. The author’s sensitivity enables him to speak movingly to people of faith, offering a handbook on the Bible’s greatest mandate for mortal existence – to choose life for the earth (which is the Lord’s) and all its inhabitants.”

Rabbi Irving (Yitz) Greenberg
Author of For the Sake of Heaven and Earth:
the New Encounter Between Judaism and Christianity

“This is just the book that members of the faith community need to make the argument on behalf of our planet based on the moral principles of the Bible. This is a perfect book for interfaith book groups and I can’t wait to share it with my fellow clergy. I appreciate the way Dr. Jurovics builds his argument chapter by chapter from Torah/Bible right through practical action. Not only that, the book is accessible and good reading.”

Rabbi David Zaslow
Author of Reimagining Exodus: A Story of Freedom

Take action – it starts with you.

“The book seeks to enroll a hitherto under-represented, though large and influential, portion of the U.S. population in addressing climate change: committed American Christians, of all denominations. If members of this faith community not yet involved in mitigating climate change began demanding a forceful response, I believe it would bring the country to the tipping point of full engagement. If America engages, most of the world community not yet committed will follow and a de-fusing of the climate change crisis will be underway.” – Excerpt from the Overview of Hospitable Planet: Faith, Action and Climate Change
