Don Day, a member of Broadway Christian Church, recently bought a copy after reading about it on the Internet. “I haven’t had time to delve into the book yet,” he said, “but I have found the scriptural passages related to the environment interesting and plan to go through the book’s ‘Trail Guide’ on my own and possibly lead a study on it in the future.”

"The Green Bible" can be purchased at Barnes and Noble in Columbia for $29.95.
