The Bible as Imagination

The We Are Not Strangers blog has a post quoting an article by Clyde S. Kilby published in 1969 called The Bible as Imagination.

Kilby makes these three assertions:
1. The first is the Bible belongs to literature; that is, it is a piece of art.
2. The second indisputable fact is that, because one—and possibly the greatest—ingredient of literature is imagination, we must say that the Bible is an imaginative book.
3. The third indisputable fact is that the greatest artist of all, the greatest imaginer of all, is the one who appears at the opening of Genesis.
