The Bible goes green

Apparently there is a new version of the Bible, the Green Bible, which "embraces environmentalism and the need to protect the earth," (h/t Huffington Post). New versions of the Bible spring up all the time, depending on new interpretations, translations, or hermeneutics; so this should not be surprising. Naturally, more progressive institutions have backed the new version, while it has split the evangelical community. Of note, this short article only gives voice to a biblical literalist hater - no balance required. If you are interested, you can purchase your copy here.

I was struck by the fact that the Bible goes green before the Detroit automakers do.
