A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE
Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions
Dr. Katharine Hayhoe & Andrew Farley
Global warming: it's one of the hottest scientific and political issues of today. And yet we've all found ourselves asking . . . - It's freezing outside--where's global warming now? - Climate is always changing--how do we know this isn't just a cycle? - Why should Christians care about global warming when we know the world won't end that way? For all the talk about climate change, there's still a great deal of debate about what it all means, especially among Christians. A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE offers straightforward answers to these questions, without the spin. This book untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming. Authored by a climate scientist and a pastor, A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE boldly explores the role our Christian faith can play in guiding our opinions on this important global issue. (2009)

BIG QUESTIONS, WORTHY DREAMS
Sharon Daloz Parks
The "twenty-something" years of young adulthood are increasingly recognized as critical but puzzling. These are years of searching, when most people make formative life decisions, for good and for ill. Looking for place and purpose in a changing world and asking new questions of meaning and faith, young adults reexamine their earlier beliefs and assumptions, as they encounter a bewildering array of new experiences and complex choices. In today's society, too many wander through this challenging time alone, without the presence of mentoring voices.Building on the foundation she established in her classic work, The Critical Years, Sharon Daloz Parks urges thoughtful adults to assume responsibility for providing strategic mentorship during this important decade in life. She reveals also, however, the ways young adults are influenced not only by individual mentors but also by mentoring environments.Furthermore, Parks asserts, the wider culture as a whole plays a mentoring role in the formation of each new generation of young adults, shaping the future of the culture itself. Through exploring young adult meaning-making and faith, and particularly the power of adult mentors to determine its quality, we may more fully recognize how young adults and their mentors can fuel the power and promise of cultural renewal.Parks draws on her own research and insights from developmental psychology, religion, theology, leadership, and ethics to examine the underlying developmental patterns of this unique time of life--when one is no longer an adolescent and yet not quite fully adult. She shares a wealth of practical experience gained from thirty years of working with young adults. Through thought-provoking examples from across a broad range of contexts, professionals, educators, community leaders, supervisors, and parents will discover the many ways they can responsibly serve as guides and mentors to young adults.
