One of my favorite metaphors for the divine-human combination in the inspiration of scripture and the working of the gift of prophecies comes from the story of the One-Ended Telephone Cord. This links to a story I wrote on my personal blog back in 2005, but I’ve been using it for even more years than that.
Why do I mention it now? It goes with my special offer for autoraphed copies of my book, When People Speak for God.
