Green Bible

So I’m reading TIME magazine the other day, thanks to a generous friend who has paid for my subscription, and I come across an ad for the “Green Bible.”  Most of us know about the “red letter” editions, where the words of Jesus appear in red ink while everything else is in black text.  But The Green Bible is for the nature lover and environmentalist where the over 1,000 verses in the Bible that relate to nature are all printed in a “pleasant shade of forest green.”

The idea behind this new edition is that “creation care”–the Christian catchphrase for nature conservancy–“is at the very core of our Christian walk.”  I’m not so sure that I agree with this “core” value put forth in the introduction to the Green Bible by Evangelical eco-activist J. Matthew Sleeth, but I’ll withhold judgment until I get a chance to pick up one for myself.
