Really an amazing blog post that if you take the time to process it will really make you think. It’s on intelligent puddles and early religion.
Peter Enns with a wonderful treatment of a seminar given by Walter Brueggemann.
The heart of the Bible is not the presentation of history but a font of imagination that hosts a world other than the one in front of us. By “imagination” Brueggemann does not mean “irreal” but quite the opposite. He claims that the world we live in, the world where the empires of man rule, is the parody. All empires are acts of imagination: they present a world that lures humanity into its false hopes and lays claim to our hearts and souls as the unquestioned status quo.
