“Genesis supplements “created in God’s image” with the affirmation that God thus made humanity “male and female.” Women and men together comprise this image. The statement is an extraordinary one in this opening chapter of Genesis, written in a patriarchal culture. One might wonder whether the author of Genesis saw the implications of this declaration. Certainly generation after generation of Christians have not seen it. We have often talked and behaved as if the male was the normal and full form of a human being, with the female a deviant and slightly inferior form. But both male and female belong to the image. You have the image of God represented in humanity only when you have both men and women there. When women are not present and involved in God’s work in the world (and in the church), the image of God is not present.”
John E. Goldingay, Genesis for Everyone: Part 1 Chapters 1-16

“... prayer does not have to be theologically correct. It is a conversation.”
John Goldingay, Isaiah

“It is said that the difference between God and us is that God never thinks he is us. Genesis suggests some nuancing of that insight. God doesn’t mind sharing with us the divine life and the divine image and thus the divine responsibility for the world, and eventually God will become one of us.”
John E. Goldingay, Genesis for Everyone: Part 1 Chapters 1-16
