The Big Picture

I was recently reminded of the Evangelical view of the meta-narrative or “big picture” in the Bible.  Our view explains the story of the Bible and our own personal lives in this structure:

  1. Creation – “He said it was good.”
  2. Fall – separation from what God intended.
  3. Redemption – A way is made to return.
  4. Restoration – Back to the way things should be.

Since the Book of Mormon and other Mormon scriptures add to this narrative I wonder how Mormons would succinctly decribe their faith’s grand story. Is it the same or different?
