Scripture & Ministry: Michael Allen

Into the Family of God: Creation, Covenant, and the Genesis of Life with God


The book of Genesis sketches the foundations not only of human society and creatureliness but of the church and Christian worship. To help make sense of both origins and ends of creation, the book draws our attention to the doctrine of the covenant and the pledge that people are drawn “into the family of God.” In this lecture, Allen will follow the basic theological moves of the doctrine of the covenant in this fundamental text, seeking to sketch its implications for a number of theological and anthropological concerns, not least the doctrine of creation.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
