being “green” and the bible

Not to be too snarky about it, but here’s a thought: Instead of, or better–in addition to, a “Green Bible,” which I like lots for it’s Christian environmentalism and eco-justice focus (though I’m reluctant about the green-lettering idea, I like everything else), why not publish all of our bibles “green”?

Can I get my TNIV thinline in “green” printing/production from Zondervan? How about my highly anticipated NRSV Wesley Study Bible in “green” printing/production from Abingdon?

Why not make being green about bible publishing, or even Christian publishing generally, less niched and more typical/assumed? I’m glad for The Green Bible‘s contribution, but it will be even better when the industry is green, not just one brand of bible.
