Rising winds, ravenous wildfires, droughts, hurricanes, floods: the world we will pass on is different than the one we inherited. With an unflinching gaze and a blunt pen, David Williams spells out how we will be morally tested on this harsher, hotter planet we have made for ourselves.

Yet we are not without hope. In Our Angry Eden, Williams beckons readers toward a belief and a promise resilient enough to face the effects of the climate crisis. From altering our diets to welcoming refugees to reclaiming humble lifestyles, he offers eight actions we can take to fulfill the fierce demands of our faith and embody hope in the middle of catastrophic truth. For followers of Jesus, the practices of wisdom and thrift, patience and generosity, welcome and mercy, grace and justice have always been essential and will be key to human thriving in the years and decades to come.

As temperatures move inexorably upward, living with our angry Eden will mean sustained difficulty and disruption. Find the hope that transcends time and the faith that rises to meet our harsh and unforgiving reality.
