The Eden Project provides a guide for the purpose of seeing God’s single plan of creation and redemption in the Bible. It is designed and written for pastors and laity, and arises out of Jackson’s many years of teaching and re-teaching this story. Standing behind this study is solid scholarship that validates and authenticates the author’s approach to Scripture. In our fragmented world, this book will give the serious reader an integrated picture of the God of Scripture and the human family he created and saved through his Son, Jesus Christ.

The importance of narrative, Are you part of a story? Edit, late 2012: I’ve become an atheist and renounced my belief in Christianity, that said, I’m leaving this (and most of my Christian book reviews) intact, I think they are still instructive and many are at least decently written. They are instructive to me as well as they represent many years of being instructed in a belief system I’ve now rejected. Interestingly enough the author of this book became a friend and mentor of mine after I was forced to leave the church I’d been attending for many years, and I believe he is a decent and kind person, but when I investigate the evidence before me, I see all this narrative about god just a lot of cool stories and poetry. What is often left out is the fact that many writings that didn’t fit the mold have been or were left out, it’s all circular reasoning, like Paul says to Timothy; “scripture interprets scripture” and we have to accept that the people telling us what is and what is not god’s voice actually have a better vantage point…

“Go ahead, tell me what the Bible says …” Wouldn’t an overarching narrative that every other fragment, story, and character of the Bible fits into help us understand just how our little lives are supposed to fit into God’s grand plan?I’m immensely enjoying Jackson’s well honed, eagle’s eye view of Scripture from Genesis to Genuine Leather. In a church world providing increasingly fragmented Sunday fodder perhaps overviews like Jackson’s that inform the smaller stories, will help us more clearly perceive God’s will. I feel grand metanarratives like Jackson’s, by reminding us, serve to help keep us more closely focused on God’s way from here to glory. Jackson beautifully illuminates God’s way.
