Tending to Creation's Crisis

Many people see the environmental crisis as a spiritual one.

Ellen Bernstein sees the Book of Genesis as a guide to living peaceably with the earth. The creation story, according to Bernstein, invites a deep appreciation of nature and may be the perfect muse for a world that is hungry for an integrated ecological vision.

Written from a Jewish perspective, this book is both accessible and compelling to a broad audience, as it explores Genesis 1, verse by verse, reflecting on the language that contributes to a holistic ecological vision.
