The Theological Art of Story

Have you decided what you’re going to do without a literal Adam & Eve? If you haven’t, you should. New material from Christian sectors, in addition to our own, is finally surfacing on this issue. Taking the ‘natural world informer’ seriously means we have to ‘imagine’ a fresh way of interpreting early Genesis. You’ll find our proposal in From Evolution to Eden. Read it and see what you think.

Reflection for the Week - February 27

While the evolving picture of nature is looking likely, it’s also important to recognize that the more the biblical story advances, through surprising encounters, choices, and detours, the clearer it becomes that this too is an evolving narrative. Think of the way, for example, developing Israel emerges into the Messiah, how the Spirit in the gospel of John flourishes in Paul’s letters, and why the golden age in Jerusalem provokes a mission to the ends of the earth. The natural world and biblical text informers are related and distinct in telling God’s story – both evolve, yet with quite different characteristics and features.
