No story has power, nor will it last, unless we feel in ourselves that it is true and true of us. After noting this quote from John Steinbeck's classic novel East of Eden, Steven D. Mathewson writes that Bible stories should lure people into real-life dramas where they run smack into God's assessment of their lives. But too often we reduce stories to a list of principles or commands, robbing them of their rich complexity and ability to touch our lives in a deep way.
