9780692555286: The Bible Unveiled: Updated and Gender-Neutral

You have a biography written about you. It is called the Bible... and you are on every page. · Some people wonder why the Bible has to be unveiled at all, and the answer is that the Bible is written in symbol and allegory, for many reasons, but chiefly because that is the only method by which the teaching could be made fit for every kind of person at every stage of spiritual development in every age. While the Bible contains much authentic history and biography, it also contains a great mass of parables and allegories. The chief difficulty in modern times that intelligent people have had to meet is that they have not understood that some of the things in the Bible that used to be taught as fact are really allegory, and contain great diagrams of our personal destinies. In "The Bible Unveiled," Emmet Fox unveils a cross-section of the Bible in narrative form, not only to make the Bible come alive for today’s readers, but also to open up the reader’s consciousness to the diagrams for living that the Bible has cloaked in symbol and allegory.
