Bible goes green
“Highlighting Scripture from its environmental perspectives clearly shows that the Bible has much to say about our responsibilities to care for creation and all of its creatures,” Christine Gutleben, director of the society’s animal and religion program, said in a prepared statement.
“The Green Bible” is to hit bookstore shelves Oct. 7, but the humane society plans to distribute copies at upcoming events for its All Creatures Great and Small campaign, including a reception at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday.
“The Green Bible” highlights in green, soy-based ink, more than 1,000 references, verses and passages related to the Earth. It also contains essays contributed by Brian McLaren, Matthew Sleeth, N.T. Wright, Desmond Tutu and others, and includes a detailed index and personal study guide.
The humane society, through its All Creatures Great and Small campaign, provides ways for people to practice stewardship on behalf of animals and the environment.
“Our campaign is ‘The Green Bible’ in action,” Gutleben said.
