Interview with Ronald Osborn

We must press beyond the various creation narratives in the Hebrew Bible, including the final chapters of Job, to the picture of God revealed in the New Testament—the Creator who does not rationally explain away the scandal of suffering but who instead enters into it.

 

A Review of “Death Before the Fall: Biblical Literalism and the Problem of Animal Suffering” by Ronald E. Osborn

The confident assertion that the Bible trumps science stems from a misunderstanding of the purpose of the scriptures, and a misapplication of the Bible to answer questions that can only be answered by the application of science.

Series: Science and the Bible (22 entries)

Series: Genesis, Creation, and Ancient Interpreters: In the Garden (8 entries)

In this lengthy series, Pete Enns engages the peculiar and unfamiliar parts of Genesis 2. He first presents the details of the story which ancient interpreters often wrestled with, and then he discusses the scholars’ conclusions and offers his own insight. He addresses such particulars as the speaking serpent that tempts Adam and Eve, the idea that the couple was naked before their act of disobedience, and the fact that Adam and Eve did not physically die when they ate the forbidden fruit.

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.

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.

Series: Seeing God in Everyday Work (2 entries)

Bethel was where I learned that the science that I loved could be a Christian calling. Before that I had a vague notion that truly serving God meant being a pastor or missionary. Here I learned that in every profession you can love God with heart and soul and mind and strength, studying God’s world with your mind and caring for it with your hands.
