Saying Yes to Life [9780281083770]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'Ruth Valerio’s book is perfect for individuals and groups to think, reflect, pray and be challenged together.' JUSTIN WELBY, from the Foreword

Saying Yes to Life lifts our focus from natural, everyday concerns to issues that are impacting millions of lives around the world. As people made in the image of God, we are entrusted to look after what he has created: to share in God’s joy and ingenuity in making a difference for good. Ruth Valerio imaginatively draws on the Days of Creation (Genesis 1) in relating themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern.

Foundational to Saying Yes to Life is what it means to be human and, in particular, to be a follower of Jesus. Voices from around the world are heard throughout, and each chapter ends with discussion questions and a prayer to aid action and contemplation.
