If the Bible exercises its authority as a Story, what are the alternative stories that challenge the Bible for this authority? Chuck and Aaron talk about competing stories that contemporary culture tells itself that all claim to have authority.
The story of the Bible tells the story of Creation (Where did we come from? What are we meant for?), Fall (What went wrong? Why are we in the trouble we’re in?), Redemption (What’s the solution? How are things getting fixed?), and Restoration (How will the Story end with a happy ending?).
Chuck and Aaron discuss competing stories like the Story of the American Dream, the Story of the Sexual Revolution, the Story of Individualism, etc., and how these stories compete with Christianity with alternative versions of Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration.
