moves toward undoing textual 'violence'

A blog I frequent, by Art Boulet has this very note worthy post entitled, "philistia and philosophical presuppositions." He writes...

"...the biblical narrative is only authentic, only trustworthy, only worthy to be called “the Word of God,” if it lives up to a certain idea of historicity that is embedded within our modern psyche. I’m not quite convinced, as you probably already know, that such a posture is necessarily a positive one."

If you are in tune with contemporary scholarship and the historical, textual and theological insights or controversies brought forth then give this post a read.
