The Bible According to Noah
by Gary Kowalski
Lantern Books,
ISBN 1-930051-32-8
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.
