Globalisation and consumerism affect every area of our lives. But it's not just about shopping; these powerful forces shape our personal lives, how we relate to one another, how we view the world - and they are having a seriously detrimental impact both on the lives of the global poor, and on the health of the planet itself.
Every Christian in every generation down through the history of the church has had to work out what it means to be a follower of Jesus in their particular culture; for us in the twenty-first century, we must think about discipleship in a globalised, consumerist context. Environmentalist and theologian Ruth Valerio examines these issues in a book that is intellectually rigorous yet practical, and as inspiring as it is challenging.
Ruth Valerio is the Manager of A Rochas Living Lightly 24:1 project, which enables people to live greener, simpler lives, and is the author of L is for Lifestyle: Christian living that doesnt cost the earth.
She is doing doctoral studies at Kings College London and spends much of her time speaking and writing on issues of justice and the environment, as well as living it out practically at home in a number of different ways. Previously she was Head of Social Responsibility for the Evangelical Alliance and an advocate for Christian Relief, Education and Development (Cred) and is a Tutor at the Open Theological College.
