|jeshurun press presents a unique and yet ancient journey into the age-old connection between humankind, nature, and the spiritual foundation of the planet and stewardship||
Lately I've been getting questions about the religious tradition upon which this newly released work is based. I want to be clear: The book GODless Environmentalism: The Failure of Environmental Protection and Our Hidden Power to Save the Planet is based on ancient biblical sources and related sources from the ancient oral tradition, most of which date from the time of ancient Jewish religious sources dating back to before, during, and immediately after the First and Second Temple periods in Jerusalem. This makes the book of interest to Jews (especially Torah Jews interested in exploring the roots of their ancient faith as it relates to planet earth), Christians (both Catholic and Protestant all shades in between, from Evangelical) and Mormons/LDS members whose interests in theology include discussions of what the latter sometimes refer to as the Old Testament. The intention was to write the book in such a way as to be of interest to both those with an environmental policy background and those with a theological background interested in the ways in which a rigorous stewardship approach fits into environmental protection, ecology and environmentalism.
