Barth Bite for December 31, 2015

“If the biblical creation stories agree in content and character with the rest of the biblical witness, we ought not to be offended because they are sagas. We are no less truly summoned to listen to what the Bible has to say here in the form of saga than to what it has to say in other places in the form of history, and elsewhere in the form of address, doctrine, meditation, law, epigram, epic and lyric.” – Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics, Volume III.1 “The Doctrine of Creation,” page 83
