Judaism and Global Survival

Portada
Lantern Books, 2002 - 252 páginas
This book is designed to show that both Jews and non-Jews don't need to discover new values and approaches to solving the crisis of environmental loss and planetary despoliation; what is needed, instead, is a rediscovery of basic Jewish teachings and mandates, such as to seek and pursue peace, justice, to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to act as co-workers with God in protecting and preserving the world. In such a way, Richard Schwartz calls for a new vision of the world--one that ensures our personal, interpersonal, and global survival.

Página 85 - And he -shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off ; and they shall -beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks : nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall -sit every man under his vine and under his fig-tree ; and none shall make them afraid : for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
Página 8 - I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and cereal offerings, I will not accept them, and the peace offerings of your fatted beasts I will not look upon. Take away from me the noise of your songs; to the melody of your harps I will not listen. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an everflowing stream.

I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger.
Página 27 - That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked; and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
Página 94 - Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, "I am strong.
Página 12 - And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul...
Página 164 - And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
