Chapter 8



Chapter 8- National leadership will inspire change

This chapter considers the need for leadership to bring about change. We look at the biblical examples of Job, Joseph and Moses in their approach to change. We consider the issues of Agriculture, Energy, and Transport. We then look at the National Church’s responsibility for environment and Christian environmental organisations. Finally we consider change as transformation and look at the implications of the resurrection of Jesus for our own lives today.
