For some sixty thousand years, the human family has -- following the Biblical mandate -- "subdued" the earth, at times respectfully, but often irresponsibly. With little thought for future generations, we have, especially in the modern era, plundered the clean air, pure water, and bountiful, unspoiled land bequeathed to us, taking them and their life-sustaining fruits

Overview

For some sixty thousand years, the human family has -- following the Biblical mandate -- "subdued" the earth, at times respectfully, but often irresponsibly. With little thought for future generations, we have, especially in the modern era, plundered the clean air, pure water, and bountiful, unspoiled land bequeathed to us, taking them and their life-sustaining fruits for granted. At the beginning of the new century, however, these natural gifts are in danger of becoming mere nostalgic memories. The Green Bible seeks out the word of God for our diminished planet. Its sources range from the Hebrew and Christian scriptures to religious and political leaders, scientists, and environmentalists today. Their voices bring home the urgent task we face: to mend our household, which is Creation, and to inspire hope that life will continue -- and flourish -- for all Earth's beings.
