Humans are composed of poetic tissues as surely as physical ones. Our identities, worldviews, longings--all are drawn and developed from the unique relationships and texts we encounter and incorporate. We collect and imagine stories and creatively build them into the tale of ourselves.
But each of these personal mythologies is irrevocably lost at death--unless it is true, as Christianity claims, that God raises the dead.
Systematic Mythology: Imagining the Invisible studies the ways in which we make meaning. It argues that God must be the ultimate subject of every person's essential myth, so that Christ may redeem and resurrect our stories as well as our bodies. Systematic mythology calls us to consciously and creatively participate in the story God is telling through our cosmos and its inhabitants: a story in which Christ is all, and in all.
