Loved this, in e-mail from Tess: “It’s fascinating to see how theology has meandered through a maze of ‘not quite right’ solutions to the evidence God gives us about his character and our purpose. It resembles quite strongly the struggle physicists are currently having trying to find a unifying field theory of everything. Every solution they find that fits some of the data fails to explain something else, or even contradicts something else. Theology seems like water trying to find a path down a mountainside, sometimes carving channels, sometimes bouncing off rocks.”
