Our current habits of consumption and production in the West cannot be maintained. The way we live, in particular the way we generate and use energy, is no longer environmentally or socially sustainable. In high-income countries, it threatens our health and well-being. In low-income ones, it is already responsible for the death or displacement of hundreds of thousands of people every year. We urgently need to reconsider our lifestyles and the policies that shape them.

This new book, by Nick Spencer of the Jubilee Centre and Theos, and Faraday Institute Associate Director, Prof. Bob White FRS, analyses the scientific, sociological, economic and theological thinking that makes a Christian response to these trends both imperative and distinctive.
