Peter Halldorf's book The earth mourns , about the climate threat and Christ's hope, which was published in the fall of 2019, is now available in a new paperback edition. The first part of the book, about the climate threat, has been updated with information from recent research reports and from events of the last two years that relate to climate change.
A red thread in the book is the tension between the two biblical statements »heaven and earth will pass away« and »according to his promise we await a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness dwells«. How should they be understood in relation to each other?
Therefore, the earth mourns is, above all, a book that gives us a language for hope. It connects to Peter Halldorf's book All the birds of the sky have fled from 2017.
