Reading The Bible and Other Works.

“Unless you learn how to read symbolically, you don’t get the meaning of most Scriptures. Literallism, the way I’m afraid a lot of fundamentalists interpret the Bible, is the lowest level of meaning.

The least helpful of meaning.

It’s all symbolic.

But most of us aren’t trained to read literature, much less spiritual literature.”

~Richard Rohr
