From the Inside Flap:

The Rainbow Spirit Elders; Norman Habel, Translator; Jasmine Corowa, Artist Viewing the Creator as within the earth, not somewhere above it or outside it, Aboriginal Christians use the land as a starting point for their theology?the land from which they believe their ancestors emerged and for which they still feel responsible as custodians of the sacred. Deep within the land, they believe, is the Rainbow Spirit or Rainbow Snake, the eternal source of life and spiritual power. Identifying God the Creator with the Rainbow Spirit, they see in Christ the incarnation of the Rainbow Spirit in human form, which for them is Aboriginal Australian. In The Rainbow Spirit in Creation the Rainbow Spirit Elders share the story of the creation of the land with colorful illustrations that show the Rainbow Snake as part of the seven days of creation, offering a new interpretation of the Aboriginal culture and a view of the Creator Spirit as within the earth, not apart from it. Each of the attractive full-color paintings is accompanied by a new translation of the Genesis passage that pertains to it on the facing page. The commentary at the end of the book ties the paintings and the Scriptures together, explaining further how the paintings illustrate the story of creation. ?Most informative and reflective!
