Kimberly Johnson’s most popular book is Metaphorical God: Poems. The word “rock” is used about times in the Bible and 79 times in the Old Testament. It appears about 24 times in the book of Psalms with references to God. Moses was the first one in the Bible to use the word “rock” as a metaphor for God. “The Rock, his work is perfect; For all his ways are justice” (Deuteronomy ).Author: Margaret Minnicks.

  Dargan Thompson It’s rather uncomfortable to think of God as a woman in labor or a dog, but those are the sort of biblical metaphors Lauren Winner explores in her new book, Wearing God. Winner is a speaker, historian, author of books such as Still and Girl Meets God and an assistant professor at Duke Divinity school.

Phil. Its pages are divided into 17 by: God reveals Himself and His plan for the world and humankind in ways that address our minds and our hearts with powerful images of beauty, brokenness, need, redemption, love, and forgiveness, among many others.
