“. . . Jesus is working to restore the original vision of creation. Jesus starts from the innermost part of us, the seat of our relationship with God, and works outward to include our physical being. This process is like what [C. S.] Lewis called ‘death working backwards,’ as the ravaging effects of the Fall are reversed.”
