"The world today faces a whole series of environmental crises. My country, Canada, experiences the effects of many of these. To save this planet, humanity must learn more about the problems and find solutions. I have written this book to help us understand what is happening to our environment and what we can do about it. This book is also about the role that Christians can play. I believe that we can make a positive contribution to the ecological crises facing our planet.

Prologue
Since the termination of Project North in 1987, further evaluation and consultation between the churches in Canada has led to a new coalition on aboriginal justice concerns. This is the result of discussion between the churches, network groups, and native organizations. It shifts the focus of the former Project North to include justice issues for native people all over Canada and is based upon the church leaders' recent statement: "A New Covenant".
Text
That this National Executive Council support and participate fully in the new coalition: Project North - Ecumenical Coalition for Aboriginal Justice; and request the Program Committee to appoint two representatives from the Anglican Church of Canada to its Steering Committee. CARRIED #54-11-88
