Abstract:
This paper proposes a metaphorical approach to biblical anthropomorphic language. It seeks to avoid both unduly muting these expressions in favour of divine 'otherness,' (e.g. the accommodation of Chrysostom and Calvin, the history-of-religions approach of Walther Eichrodt, and R. E. Clements), and treating God as essentially human (Abraham Heschel, Terence Fretheim, and Open Theists). Furthermore, it endeavours to establish a more secure ground for diviue reference than that typical of analogical approaches (Aquinas).
