Saying Yes to Life: The of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2020 by Ruth Valerio





Although this is presented as Lent book, it could be read at any time of the year. Valerio takes the 7 days of Creation as launchpads for discussing the Bible’s teaching on the environment and each part of it. The beginning of each chapter is a fairly comprehensive treatment of the element of that day’s creation supplemented with information about the state of that aspect of the planet at the hands of humanity. There are some (but not very many) suggestions about what the reader might do in response.

Valerio writes openly about her life, her travels (wide!) and her attempts to lives in a sustainable / planet friendly-way. (I think there was more in her previous books – this one might have had some practical guidance in side bars.)

There is plenty of food for thought here.
