how to tell the biblical story in a way that makes a difference

Thanks, Paul.

Recognizing the limitations of historical horizons is really at the heart of the approach that I am recommending. It’s the essence of the thing. Remove those limitations and we are more or less back where we started from with a generalized and generic theology of one form or another. We would be back with “gospel” as a universal, quasi-gnostic message about personal salvation rather than a public, political announcement first to Israel, then to the nations about what YHWH was about to do in history.
