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

Yes, that was a rather heavy-handed way of putting it. The Greek Fathers hammered out a theological orthodoxy within the only worldview that they knew. They had no other choice, and I am happy to accept that they did it with a high level of intellectual integrity. The question is whether the observation that their worldview diverged both from the New Testament worldview and our own postmodern, post-Christendom worldview gives us grounds to relativize Christendom orthodoxy in some way.
