Pollution, climate change, and environmental injustice represent existential threats to our communities and to the gospel. These growing threats disproportionately impact low-income neighborhoods and communities of color throughout the United States. Environmental injustice still receives relatively little attention from Christians, however. Kyle Meyaard-Schaap teaches us that one of the greatest ways to demonstrate love for humanity is to work for environmental justice.
