Few individuals have grasped with such reverence the profound meaning of the biblical account of creation as Tolkien, Lewis, and Chesterton; and fewer still so successfully translated that meaning through the form of myth. In this talk we will take a deep long look at Genesis with the aim of discovering there what they themselves saw so clearly.
