Glenn Morton's Theology Articles and Other Topics
As with Parables, myths, fables, legends and moral tales, many stories in the Bible need not be taken literally. Indeed, to do so would render many of them ridiculous and thereby rob them of significance.
But Glenn Morton, having been brought up as a Biblical literalist, and subsequently having discovered that the interpretation he had been taught was wrong, examined the Bible stories and found ways to read them and believe them that do not clash with reality. Here are his pages on this and other subjects.
