Just Living : faith and community in an age of consumerism by Ruth Valerio

This new book looks at the connection that can be made between how we live our lives, the culture we live in, our Christian faith and the broader issues of this world.

She says “living a connected life need not be onerous and burdensome, nor lead to a life of deprivation. What i have discovered is that joining the dots can be a lot of fun and can take you on an adventure you never imagined you would have. Yes it may lead to a life where you say ‘no’ to some things, but it also leads to a life where you say ‘yes’ to a whole lot more!”

Planetwise By Dave Bookless

This is not a book on green issues to make you feel guilty. There is hope. God can take your small and insignificant efforts and multiply them in his great plan. Besides honouring him, living simply can be an exciting adventure.
