Overwhelmed by the excess in her own life, Jen Hatmaker and her family set out on a project they called “Seven.” Highlighting seven areas of excess, they committed to living a little more simply every month. Originally published in 2011 and updated in 2017, 7 has been utilized for book studies in many Christian faith communities. For those overwhelmed with the task of implementing creation care in their own lives, Hatmaker’s memoir tells of her family’s practical and faith inspired experiment. More information about Hatmaker’s project can be found on her blog.
Pastor and evangelical leader Mitch Hescox and meteorologist Paul Douglas have collaborated to integrate faith and science for their book Caring for Creation: The Evangelical's Guide to Climate Change and a Healthy Environment. This book demonstrates how Christians can take practical steps towards creating a more sustainable future, becoming leaders through a conservative evangelical approach. The authors focus on both individual and global issues, discussing ways to protect families, improve health issues, and clean up local communities.
