How there’s a better way to read Genesis 1

  1. Now you’ve done it, Ben… you’re doomed to hell, of course. 😉

    Sersiously, though… that sounds like an excellent book and kind of covers some of the ground we did yesterday… that Genesis 1 was not necessarily intended as a how-to but as a who and why… And that the reason why Moses (or whomever) wrote it down was to remind Israel of their place in that cosmology (some thoughts from Dr. Gary Schnittjer in “The Torah Story” of the arrangement of the Israelity camp in the wilderness reflecting that cosmology).

    Thanks, man… Now I have to decide whether or not I want the next book I read to be this one or “Creating a Missional Culture” by Woodward

      1. So many books… so little time… something about family, job, responsibility, etc., ya know?
