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:
- Creation – “He said it was good.”
- Fall – separation from what God intended.
- Redemption – A way is made to return.
- 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?
