Surprised by Snow Globes
But what I heard on Sundays did not seem to fit with what I experienced of the world the rest of the week. Growing up in New Mexico in the cottonwood bosque of the Rio Grande valley provided everything for a kid to become a biologist. I roamed along the river, cooked over cottonwood fires, ate wild asparagus, watched clouds form thunderheads over the distant peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Is that all?: Reflecting on a Christian Reading of Genesis
It is important to know what we should not expect from the Bible. But my fear is that we leave it at that and neglect the role that the Bible plays in the lives of Christians here and now.
