Kevin Treston is a CANA supporter in Australia. In his new book he ‘considers how the Traditional Christian Story needs to be complemented by a new story, the Cosmic Christian Story that situates God’s revelation in Jesus as the Christ within the great story of the universe …. Unless the Christ story is embedded in this consciousness, the Jesus story will tend to be marginalised in a world shaped by the new sciences of quantum physics, evolution, cosmology….’
The religious landscape is changing rapidly and many of those still affiliated with the Christian communities are increasingly uneasy about the Traditional Christian story whose original impulse was God’s act of restoration through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus following the primal sin.
‘In Who do you say I am?, Kevin Treston offers a complementary understanding of the tradition, exploring the features of a Cosmic Christian Story that situates God’s revelation in Jesus as the Christ firmly within the evolving dynamics of creation. It seeks a response to how Christians may understand and celebrate the Incarnation within the wondrous evolution of all things in our cosmic context … a Story that takes account of modern science….’
