Genesis, the soap opera

The Boston Globe Ideas section ran Genesis, the Soap Opera, my Q&A with John Coats, author of the recent book “Original Sinners.” It weaves in stories from Genesis with stories from his life that reflect those in Genesis. He’s attempting to reclaim the book of Genesis for everyone, not just believers. I mostly enjoyed the book, and did see some of myself in some of the stories (though his yarns are better than mine).

It’s a good read, fun and rich and earthy, and thought-provoking. I might post some of the stuff I had to cut, since I found it difficult to cut.
