Set the Story

Today’s guest quote is by Brian McLaren, from A New Kind of Christianity:

As I allowed Genesis, Exodus, and Isaiah—rather than Plato, Aristotle, and Caesar—to set the stage for the biblical narrative, what emerged dazzled me: a beautiful, powerful, gritty story that resonates with, gives meaning to, and continues to unfold in the life and teaching of Jesus And this story invites our participation as well, not as pawns on the squares of a cosmic chessboard, but as creative protagonists and junior partners with God in the story of creation.
