Overview

The Green Bible is a unique treasure for people who want to more fully live out the scriptural values of stewardship, love for their neighbors, and care for the underprivileged. It provides inspiration and valuable resources for contemplation, community building, and action on behalf of the planet.” — Carl Pope, executive director, Sierra Club

“Here is a Bible that helps us see that God is green, and that our faith in the God of heaven has to affect the way that we live on this earth. It is an invitation to dream in color, to re-imagine the world, and to breathe fresh life into the mess we've made just as the Creator breathed into dirt and made it walk.” —Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution

 “Challenging, inspiring, and hopeful. The Green Bible will change the way you think, and the way you live.” —Lauren F. Winner, Duke Divinity School, author of Girl Meets God

Read the scriptures anew, with The Green Bible as your guide. With its eco-friendly materials, Green Trail Guide, topical index and inspirational essays, discover how caring for the earth is not only a calling, but a lifestyle.

Editorial Reviews

Richard Cizik
“This is exactly what the Church needs at this critical time.”
Library Journal

One of the most intriguing new Bibles, bound in flexible hemp-like cloth, it bears not a cross on its cover but a tree, an apt symbol of the whole enterprise. Gone are "the words of the Lord in red"-instead we have words "tracing environmental themes" in green, which results in embarrassingly long stretches of all-black type. Added are pieces by "inspirational" authors, including Francis of Assissi, who, in his humility, would have been appalled by such elevation above the words of his God. With over 100 pages of prefatory material by the likes of Desmond Tutu, Barbara Brown Taylor, and the late John Paul II before a word of Genesis. Deceptively like this one, but aimed at hunters more than preservers, is a novelty reprint, Nelson's Great Outdoors Bible, now in waterproof artificial leather in camouflage colors!

I own a hardcopy of this bible and I love it. The scriptures that relate to creation are highlighted in green but that's not the case in the nook version--no highlights at all. The whole point of the Green Bible is to direct you to the "Green" verses but there are none!

I like this version however the ebook does not have the green letters as it says in the begining. So I am little disappointed.

I adore this bible and am eager to puruse it for random tid-bits. By placing all the references to nature and the environment in green font, I am constantly reminded that stewardship and responsibility for our planet are integral to my experiences of faith. The forward by Bishop Desmond Tutu, and other essays are reminders of how I can fit eco-awareness and environmentalism with faith and Christianity. God Bless!

This is an excellent Bible and an excellent source for environmental connections. I have been using the NRSV for years, and The Green Bible makes a superb addition to my Augmented Oxford edition. It is informative and useful to see which verses the Editors have chosen to highlight in green. Also, the approximately 120 page introduction provides a wonderful environmental commentary. Its size and packaging make it a convenient volume to carry.

By far the best feature is the Trail Guide in the appendix, but the introductory essays--especially John Paul's--are also a welcome boon. The selected passages marked in green in the NRSV text is also helpful. This Bible is a real blessing for Christians with an environmental concern.
