On the Environment, Abraham Joshua Heschel, "God in Search of Man," (Farrar, Straus and Giroux , 1976)
"There are three ways in which we may relate ourselves to the world: we may exploit it, we may enjoy it, we may accept it in awe."

Suggested Discussion Questions:

Describe each of these three ways of relating to the world. What are the differences between exploiting, enjoying, and accepting with awe?

In your own life, when are times that you have interacted with the world in each of these ways. How did the experiences differ?

In particular, what actions do we take towards the environment that represent these three options of how to relate to the world?

Time Period: Contemporary (The Yom Kippur War until the present-day)
