    Thanks Kerry, for ‘Adam’s Family Jewels.’ A fascinating article. I wish I’d been familiar with some of those interpretations back in my university Bible study days. Might have given my ‘you can’t take the Bible completely literally’ a little more oomph and saved me a (metaphorical) bashing.

    Glad you enjoyed it, sorry it is a few years late. I thought it was quite an interesting article. And the point about taking the Bible literally was a good one, even if you were bashed.
