Quote of the Day

My special thanks to the kind folk at IVP for review copies of both volumes 1 and 2 of John Goldingay's new Old Testament Theology. I'll be featuring both of these exciting books on the blog in the next week or two. I'm really enjoying them.

'Given that biblical creation accounts are either poetry or parabolic history, in principle Christians have no vested interest in any particular scientific theory about how the world came into being'

John Goldingay, Old Testament Theology. Volume 1: Israel's Gospel (Downers Grove, Illinois: IVP, 2003), 49

My only question is what in the world is "parabolic history"?

No, seriously, can anyone tell me what this means?

A good question. I will lazily point you in the direction of his Models for Scripture! (I can't find it at the mo)
