The Green Bible

I'm not sure we need this. The official website is here. The features: "Green-Letter Edition: verses and passages that speak to God's care for creation highlighted in green" and "A personal green Bible trail guide." Hmmm.

I wonder if the passage about Jesus cursing the fig tree so that it withered and died will be in Green?

Wow- that's all I can say. Abi just got back from 5th grade nature, green, compost camp. However, I'm deciding green is so last year and I'm going blue. Maybe I should make the blue bible- verses about sky and sea.

And whatever happened to the wisdom of the red letter Bible we Reformed folks have all grown to frown upon. At least it focused on the words of Jesus. Isn't this switch to focusing on creation instead of the Creator spoken on somewhere in Romans 1.

Well, I guess we can be thankful that this hippie Bible is still the word of God and that it will bring glory to God and the Lamb.

i'm not sure we need any of the "special" bibles we have out there in the market. i'm all for a solid general study bible but have so many different "types" of bibles in the christian world (including several that have come out of reformed&presbyterian circles) that we have reinforced the general idea that you can make the bible say anything you want. whenever i get a glimpse of the christian marketing circus it reminds me why much of the world simply laughs at us.
