The problem of climate change is greater and more urgent than many of us realise. For while we may appreciate the challenges posed by technical and political issues, the fundamental problem, as Nichlas Holtam argues so credibly in this exhilarating book, is spiritual. The words o...f scientist Gus Speth, former Director of the National Research Defence Council in the US, are highly pertinent: 'I used to think the top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, eco system collapse and climate change. I thought that with 30 years of good science we could address those problems. But I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy - and to deal with those we need a spiritual and cultural transformation - and we scientists don't know how to do that.' Offering a meditation about climate change and the environment that is brilliantly relevant to the season, the Archbishop of York's Advent Book 2022 focuses over 4 weeks on the topics of Now, Spirituality, Creation and Hope. Each section is illustrated with 3 fine art paintings to prompt reflection, prayer and action.
