Scripture & Ministry: Craig Bartholomew

The Goodness of Creation and Its Ethical Implications

Genesis 1 repeatedly says that God saw that his emerging creation was good and then that it was very good. In my lecture I will explore what this goodness (tob) means in its Ancient Near Eastern, Old Testament, and canonical context and its implications for a Christian doctrine of creation and the comprehensive ethical vision evoked by this emphasis. An assessment will be made of the extent to which (Evangelical) Christians are faithful to this vision and what such faithfulness might look like today.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
