This is a fantastic post from Dane Ortlund. He asked a scrum of pastors and theologs to summarize the entirety of Scripture in one sentence. There’s plenty that is left out and that doesn’t need apology.
Here is my favorite, but you should read the whole yourself:
Scripture tells us the story of how a Garden is transformed into a Garden City, but only after a dragon had turned that Garden into a howling wilderness, a haunt of owls and jackals, which lasted until an appointed warrior came to slay the dragon, giving up his life in the process, but with his blood effecting the transformation of the wilderness into the Garden City. – Doug Wilson
And, just thinking further on it, I’ll refer to the modern-poet I just posted about in the last post. One of his songs reminds us,
The world was good. The world is fallen. The world will be redeemed.
