A Tale of Adam and Eve
BEING HUMAN, BECOMING IMAGO DEI: A TALE OF ADAM AND EVE is a symbolic retelling of the biblical story. This series is in no way meant to reflect a literal interpretation of Genesis. Instead, it takes the Hebrew tale with the symbolism already therein and builds upon it with more adventures and more symbolism.
This story represents the human journey–the journey from a state of brokenness and ignorance to a state of harmony. While Adam and Eve are the primary characters, the true protagonist is the human being. This is not just an ancient Hebrew etiological tale retold; it is an allegory to the human pursuit of identity, of meaning, and of God.
As such, this story posits a number of my own theological perspectives. For the last decade, I have been on a journey of my own trying to understand the nature of God, nature of being human, and the relationship between the two. This story is an explanation of what I have come to believe about certain topics in religion and theology.
Written as a series, BEING HUMAN, BECOMING IMAGO DEI will be told bit by bit on a weekly basis. Below are the parts that have been published on the blog:
