The Green Bible

This new NRSV edition from HaperOne will equip and encourage people to see God's vision for creation and help them engage in the work of healing and sustaining it. With over 1,000 references to the earth in the Bible, compared to 490 references to heaven and 530 references to love, the Bible carries a powerful message for the earth.

The Green Bible is produced with soy-based inks, recycled paper, and a 100% cotton/linen cover, The Green Bible is packed with special features tracing environmental themes woven through Scripture. The Bible “is an ecological handbook on how to live rightly on earth,” says conservationist Cal DeWitt, one of the contributors.

Essays by a range of voices offer an ecumenical perspective on eco-justice and the Bible’s message for the earth, including a foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu; author Brian McLaren on the theological shift toward creation care; preacher Barbara Brown Taylor on our responsibility to care for what God loves; the late pope John Paul II on the ecological crisis as a moral problem; Jewish environmentalist Ellen Bernstein on ten principles of creation theology; and Anglican Bishop of Durham, England N.T. Wright on how we must be God’s agents in bringing forth environmental renewal today.
