Beyond Literal Thinking in Religion by David Tacey. Link to article
This is one of the better things I've read this year. Tacey proclaims literalism as the greatest sin of religion, the ultimate demise of religion that is wed to literalism, and proposes a return to the metaphoric/mythic if religion is to survive. Some may say that is an extreme position, but I don't think he's that far off. I may blog through the article in the near future.
