John Wilson: No One Reads the Bible Literally – WSJ.com.

This is an article that, I think, should be read by all those who believe in the authority and trustworthiness of the Bible.

Here is a short quote:

‘…an alarm should sound whenever the word “literal” is used in this context, whether as a badge of pride (“I just believe in reading the Bible literally”) or as a hint that low-browed fundamentalists are lurking nearby. No one—no one—reads the Bible literally. But some readers are more attentive, more faithful, more imaginative and more persuasive than others.’
