The Bible According to Noah
by Gary Kowalski
Theologian and VVS participant Gary
Kowalski uses the familiar Bible stories of the Creation,
Noah's Ark, Abraham and Isaac, the trials of Job,
and Jonah and the whale as jumping-off points for
reflections on the sanctity and kinship of all living
beings and the need for nonviolence, justice, and
toleration of differences. He argues that we need to
write our own religious history as a work in progress and
reinterpret the sacred stories we have inherited in light
of the challenges of today.
