It was written in a mountain hideaway as eagles soared up the valley below. Published in time for United Nations climate change talks in Paris, A Christian Guide To Environmental Issues focuses on A Rocha UK and its associates across the globe.
Penned by A Rocha UK board member Rev Margot Hodson with her husband Martin (pictured), the book takes eight environmental issues and offers a biblical reflection on each one. ‘As far as we know, nobody has taken this approach before,’ said the couple.
The Hodsons wrote their manuscript on sabbatical in Spain, mostly in a mountain retreat. ‘A special highlight was sitting on the terrace of our apartment at breakfast,’ said Martin, ‘and watching the booted eagles flying up the valley below.’
They ended their sabbatical trip at Cruzinha, A Rocha Portugal. ‘It was October, but felt like mid-summer, and we were told this was very unusual,’ said Margot. ‘Was that global warming? We also realised how serious the threat to the Alvor Estuary is from development.’
