Chesterton House – Residence

Join us as climate scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, of Texas Tech University, speaks on climate change from the perspective of a woman of faith. Dr. Hayhoe will draw on her book A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions. Dr. Hayhoe is a noted and respected author, consultant, professor, and scientist.

“Yes Lord! A scientist and a pastor writing a book together about faith and global warming! How cool is that? What a beautiful sign of the times we are living in. A whole movement of Christians are convinced that our faith in the God of heaven has to affect the way we live on this earth. May this book continue to move us closer to God’s dream for the world.”
Shane Claiborne
author, activist, recovering sinner

Authored by a climate scientist and a religious leader, this book provides a unique perspective on Christian responses to the findings of climate science. Anyone who is open to messages from both science and Christian scriptures will be struck by the insight and synthesis of this remarkable author team. With clarity unusual in science reports and impeccable logic, A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions, is a compelling call to action.”
