Greenbelt 3. Dawn sheds new light on the bible

Maggi Dawn gave us a great talk on biblical interpretation, including an immensely satisfying and sharp refutation of the modern and slightly off-kilter idea of biblical faith being phrased in terms of propositional truth, how scripture is more about poetic truth, and a faith of approach being more biblical than one of set doctrines. Or something like that (again, this plays on themes that have been in my mind a lot, this time from a fantastic book I read recently which'll get a review in time).
