This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of greening trend in many of the world's religions, with particular attention to the influence wielded by American evangelical leaders. It then sets out the focus of the book—evangelicals and climate change—that are often debated and imprecisely defined. It then discusses how language and discourse are central to a better understanding of the intersection of climate change and evangelicals and their relevance to each another.

Keywords: climate change; evangelical leaders; religion; evangelicals
