So good. A retelling of the stories of the Bible in a narrative arc tying the pieces together. It is beautifully written.
I loved some of the turn of phrases Russ used:
- True Tall Tale
- Barren Beauty
- The story of creation – one of imagination and image. Man created in God’s image. The rest of creation from God’s imagination.
I used to travel quite a bit for work. Oftentimes, the colleagues I visited would take me to the highest point of their city to get a lay of the land. This book is like that. It’s a 10,000 ft view of the narrative arc passing through the 66 books of the Bible.
