Judaism and Global Survival
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 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.
