ABOUT THE CLASS
Thinking Metaphorically and Metaphysically: The Study of Literature as a Means to Spiritual Enlightenment
Throughout the Scriptures, God speaks to us through figurative language because he created us to think metaphorically. Understanding symbolism, imagery, anthropomorphism, allegory, and other poetic devices is at times necessary to comprehend theological concepts that lie at the foundation of our beliefs. This class will discuss how developing our understanding of literary elements of Scripture can deepen our practice of exegesis and enhance our relationship with God.
