Symptoms of broken systems are all around us, due to our over-consumptive lifestyles, nearly unfettered capitalism, failure to live peaceably together, and the societal dismissal of nature's limits. Climate change is our new reality, and we must respond to that immediately. Fortunately, the world's faith traditions in general--and Christianity specifically--have given us a spiritual path to follow that can alleviate these problems. When the golden rule is coupled with the ethics and principles of permaculture in theory and in practice, then humanity and the diversity of other species can harmoniously thrive together. Go Golden, like a weather vane, points the reader towards the path forward. ""Dillon Naber Cruz presents Christians with a choice in this book: continue destroying the planet and eventually destroy ourselves, or become stewards of God's creation for the sake of our grandchildren and their children. While you may find yourself, as I did, disagreeing with certain political positions Cruz takes, you will also find yourself cheering him on as this autobiographical tale leads from ignorance to insight, from prevarications to profundity, and from human selfishness to salvation."" --Michael Hardin, author of Mimetic Theory and Biblical Interpretation and co-editor of Compassionate Eschatology ""In Go Golden, Dillon Naber Cruz examines the ecological problems faced by the world while asking the reader to consider what would happen if we treated everyone, including the other-than-human, as we want to be treated? As someone of faith who cares for Earth, I consider Go Golden essential reading for anyone who wants to create a more beautiful world today and for generations to come."" --Scott Mann, host of ""The Permaculture Podcast with Scott Mann"" Dillon Naber Cruz is a permaculture enthusiast and author. He enjoys photography and hiking as a way to connect him to his local bioregion. Cruz is a graduate of Lancaster Theological Seminary and member of Wisdom's Table UCC, an open and affirming church in Lancaster, PA.
