Many thanks to my publisher and friend for this new project, where Energion authors are publicized. You can, should, and must read my article…over there:

Growing up, we were told to read Scripture via the plain sense model. The words on the page contained no mystery and were to be received exactly as we understood them. There was limited allegory (usually one instance, Galatians 4.24), but otherwise, things we didn’t understand (Revelation) became “prophecy.”
