I got my very own copy of The Green Bible for Christmas (Thank you Kim!). It’s going to be an invaluable resource for this blog, particularly blogging through the Bible and thinking about how Christians have related to food/creation throughout history. An entire article is nothing but quotes about creation through Christian history. I’m very excited about using this Bible for my own devotional life as well as studying the Bible.
It features essays from the likes of N.T. Wright, Brian Mclaren, Pope John Paul II, Barbara Brown Taylor, a foreword by Desmond Tutu and it starts off with a poem from Wendell Berry (after a word from St. Francis of course). Words in the text that relate to creation are printed in green to highlight them. I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on this edition of the bestselling book in history and it looks like it delivers on its promises.
