‘Sustainability Book’ offers Christian perspective on Sustainable Development Goals

A new publication, The Sustainability Book offers online texts and resources about the Sustainable Development Goals for use by congregations, gatherings, and individuals.

Edited by Anne Marte Skaland and Guro Almås, The Sustainability Book is a toolbox that will help people fight for a better World.

The editors note that the Sustainable Development Goals represent both something old and something new. "The struggle for peace, for the environment and for justice is by no means new,” reads the foreword. “Although the struggle is old, these goals create a new impetus.”

The book invites churches and Christian organisations to make up a network with branches in communities around the world. “Will we be able to use the resources we have at our disposal to generate meaningful changes?” the editors ask. “The combination of facts, Biblical reflections, questions and prayers will allow you to use this book as a resource in sermons, Bible study groups, confirmation teachings and devotions.”

The Sustainability Book, funded by Norad, was published by the World Council of Churches, Norwegian Church Aid, Christian Council of Norway, World YWCA, Church of Norway, Digni, Samarbeid menighet og misjon, and ACT Alliance.
