Strachan: Oneness Is Not Sameness in Eden

‪”The Bible begins with the oneness of humanity. In the Garden of Eden, there is no enmity and strife in the God-made world. There is difference, for the man and the woman are not the same and the creatures bear many distinctions—great and small—from one another. Oneness is not sameness in Eden. Creation forms one symphonic sound of praise—the song of life—in it’s superabundant diversity.”

-Owen Strachan, Reenchanting Humanity: A Theology of Mankind, 207.‬
