Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, criticized a newly released green-letter Bible. Published by HarperOne, the Bible is printed on recycled paper and with soy-based ink and a cotton/linen cover. Additionally, the Bible highlights passages about creation and the environment in green letters, much as many Bibles highlight the words of Jesus in red letters.

How to Save the Planet Without Busting Your Budget
Magazines and other media often paint environmentalism as a more expensive lifestyle choice. Often they use the "green" mantra to promote companies who pay for advertising. Every product that is manufactured (even if it is "green") requires energy to produce and fuel to distribute. Each of these products also creates its own waste stream. Instead of buying more products, consumers need to look at ways to use current resources more wisely. Happily, such choices are easier on the pocketbook as well as the planet.

LEEDing By Example
Curiously, churches have lagged far behind institutions of higher education and corporations in paying attention to environmental responsibility and sustainability in constructing buildings. In some conservative Christian circles, the recent obsession with creation(-ism) has led to a great deal of talk but very little walk in creation care. In some liberal circles, environmentalism has become a new creedalism, but with little or no impact on the design and construction of church facilities.

Environmental Racism: Another Inconvenient Truth
Most Americans are coming to terms with the environmental peril facing our planet.

Should Christians Be Concerned About Our Carbon Footprint?
Scientists are in wide agreement that global warming is real. Carbon dioxide and methane gases have increased in our atmosphere over the years and scientists believe these are mostly to blame for the warming phenomena which are causing more frequent extreme weather, disappearing glaciers and ice cover in both the Arctic and Antarctic Sea regions, and a rise in the ocean's temperatures.

10 Ways You Can Be More Green
I had the pleasure of hearing former Vice President and Nobel Prize recipient Al Gore speak in January at the New Baptist Covenant Celebration in Atlanta. The presentation he delivered to his fellow Baptists was one of stewardship of the earth. Caring for God's creation and its inhabitants was a responsibility first given to Adam. We still have that responsibility today, although the effects of our negligence are leaving behind some irreversible consequences.

Questions for Global-Warming Deniers
Robert Parham at EthicsDaily.com recently posted an article about Al Gore's interview on "60 Minutes" discussing the "toxic partnership" between religious fundamentalists, who deny global warming in an effort to protect a hyper-literal reading of the Bible, and free-market ideologues, who deny it to protect their financial interests.

Timidity on Global Warming Comes from Lack of Special Revelation
Unless a 21st century Moses comes down from Stone Mountain with a new commandment about global warming, don't expect the majority of Southern Baptist clergy to tackle the issue of human-induced climate change.

Global warming is worse now than when I first wrote about it in my out-of-print book, Loving Neighbors Across Time: A Christian Guide to Protecting the Earth, published in late 1991. Scientific evidence is more definitive. Moral action is more urgent. Opposition is more boneheaded now than then.

Al Gore the Prophet
From time to time throughout this long presidential campaign, I have heard several people say they wish Al Gore would get into the race. I am not one of them.

The consequences of that campaign have truly global significance.
