Jesus and Climate Change:

A Parable of the Earth

Jesus was born in Mexico and immigrated with his family to the United States when he was five years old. His mother was a devout Catholic who read the Bible to him every day. Growing up, the boy impressed his teachers with unusual gifts and qualities – his personal warmth, his poetic sensibilities, his healing touch, and his penetrating intelligence. He loved to read, especially the romantic poets and science fiction. But his true love was science, itself, and he earned full scholarships to prestigious universities to study the earth sciences.

After graduation, he went to work for a major energy company and demonstrated an uncanny knack for finding new oil and gas fields. After his local area experienced a devastating hurricane, he began looking closely at the science of climate change. What he discovered soon set him on a collision course with his company and the fossil fuel industry. But in that struggle, he always spoke openly and told the truth.

Fired when it was revealed he was an undocumented immigrant, Jesus formed a new organization to raise awareness and combat climate disruption. With his natural ability to communicate complex science in an easily understandable manner, he was able to convey the basic facts surrounding climate change – the causes, the effects, the hard proof, and the potential solutions. And people responded – at first with a small loyal following, and eventually with large crowds, both locally and nationally. He combined scientific fact with spiritual truths and applied his intimate knowledge of Biblical principles to help reach people. And as someone who strived to follow Christian principles in his personal life, he also helped the poor, fed the hungry, loved his neighbors, and spent time with children.

This novella, only 25,000 words in length, leaves the reader full of wonder – and questions. What if Jesus Christ really did come back to earth? What would he say about climate change? What would he advise us to do? How would we respond?

Jesus and Climate Change is available on Amazon.

Lincoln On Leadership

YOU THINK YOU HAVE IT ROUGH?  Only ten days before Abraham Lincoln took the oath of office in 1861, the Confederate States of America seceded from the Union, taking Federal agencies, forts, and arsenals within their territory.  To make matters worse, Lincoln, who was elected by a minority of the popular vote, was viewed by his own advisors as nothing more than a gawky, second-rate country lawyer with no leadership experience.  What Lincoln did to become our most honored and revered president is history — but how he can help you to run your organization is not.  LINCOLN ON LEADERSHIP is the first book to examine the diverse leadership abilities that have made Abraham Lincoln an inspiration to millions of people around the world.  And in today’s complex world, these lessons are more relevant than ever.  

Lincoln On Leadership for Today

Based upon Abraham Lincoln’s life, writings, and speeches, best-selling author Donald T. Phillips presents what America’s sixteenth president said and did in his own day with regard to many of the very same issues that confront us today.  Phillips shows us how Lincoln both preserved government “of the people, by the people, for the people” and abolished slavery.  Those were his immediate goals.  But there were many more concerns, both then and now.  What would Lincoln’s position be on today’s frayed race relations, on terrorism at home and abroad, gun control, and the influence of special interest groups on Congress?  What would have been Lincoln’s reaction to the invasion of Iraq?  How would he have handled the Great Recession?  What would be his stance on science and climate change?  How did Lincoln feel about government entitlement programs?  Would he have them at all?  How would he feel about the growing gap between the haves and the have-nots, a worker’s right to strike, the minimum wage, and labor unions? Would Lincoln have a mobile phone and embrace the whirl of social media?  Phillips draws on history to illuminate Lincoln’s exemplary leadership skills and offers a fascinating look at how we might solve some of our most challenging problems, Lincoln-style.
