Many people see the environmental crisis as a spiritual one, but author 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.

This message, however, is a hidden one. Thus the importance of The Splendor of Creation . 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 wholistic ecological vision.

Ellen Bernstein
is the founder of Shomrei Adamah (Hebrew for "Guardians of the Earth"), the first national Jewish environmental organization. She is a graduate of UC, Berkeley, and received her M.A. from San Francisco State University. She is the author of several books.
