Creation-Crisis Preaching

Creation-Crisis Preaching

“As Leah Schade makes clear, we need to green the pulpit if we're going to green the planet. And she provides some excellent advice about how to do that in a sound and transformative way!” —Bill McKibben, author, The Comforting Whirlwind: God, Job, and the Scale of Creation

How can we proclaim justice for God’s Creation in the face of global warming? How does fracking fit with “the earth and its fullness are the Lord’s?” Creation-Crisis Preaching works with the premise that all of Creation, including humankind, needs to hear the Good News of Jesus’ resurrection in this age in which humanity is “crucifying” Creation. Informed by years of experience as an environmental activist and minister, Leah Schade equips preachers to interpret the Bible through a green lens, become rooted in environmental theology, and learn how to understand their preaching context in terms of the particular political, cultural, and biotic setting of their congregation.

Preaching Prophetically When the News Disturbs

Preaching Prophetically When the News Disturbs

This book is the first resource to help preachers interpret the news stories of our day and to understand the media industry that produces them. It answers these questions: What does preaching have to do with the news? What is the news that disturbs? What is media literacy and why are certain tools helpful in understanding the media industry? How do we preach pastorally and prophetically during crises or when the news disturbs?

Preaching Prophetically When the News Disturbs discusses the origins of current prominent news stories that continue to receive media attention, including the radicalizing of Islam and global violence.
