Abstract

The environmental issues in the present world have raised certain serious concerns about the safety of not only the present generation but also of the future generations. The perils of environmental degradation and the use of finite resources by undermining the values of sustainability are very serious, and the Governments, Institutions, and people in general need to continuously strive for raising awareness and make concerted efforts to adapt and mitigate the ill effects of climate change. The Hebrew Bible and Environmental Ethics is a well-timed addition to scholarship, integrating the writings from religious and social sciences in order to influence the reader to take practical actions, for people and the planet.
