The Epic Tale of God’s Ongoing Quest to Restore Eden

The story of Scripture is our story. What is it about?

The epic tale of God’s ongoing quest to ransom his creation. And to, thereby, give each generation the opportunity to know his amazing grace.

The Bible is the saga of Yahweh and Adam, the prodigal son and his ever gracious heavenly father; humanity in their rebellion and God in his grace. This narrative begins with Eden and does not conclude until the New Jerusalem is firmly in place.

It is all one story. And if you are a believer, it is all your story.

Sandra Richter, The Epic of Eden (Downers Grove, InterVarsity), 15.
