Green Bible: Is God Eco-friendly?

See this article, "'Green Bible' Stirs Controversy Among Evangelicals."

"The Bible has gone green," the article begins, "But some in the evangelical community object to spreading the 'good news' through an eco-friendly Good Book ... some evangelical Christians argue that the new Bible distorts and cheapens the meaning of the scripture."

More on the NRSV Green Bible is available at the official site.

Are "creation care" and an associated "specialty Bible" taking environmentalism and Christianity too far? Not far enough?

"The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it ..." -Psalm 24:1 (NIV)
