Hospitable Planet by Stephen A. Jurovics is a work of witness about our faith and the connection to God which should lead us to save and heal our planet from environment catastrophe. While reading this book, you can’t help but recall all the environmental issues that we have faced in the past year: fires, mud slides, hurricanes, tornados.
Based on the first five books of the Bible, the book speaks to people of faith by offering us guidelines for choosing life for the earth and all its people. Jurovics compares what needs to be done to preserve our lands and people to what Dr. King did for integration. Yes, there are some facts and figures in the book, but these are overridden by the Biblical references and the truth of what is being shared.
For UMW this book is a great supplement for our Mission Study: Climate Justice. This challenging book is a bonus book and counts as two books in the Social Action category.
