Narrative Theology

Paul Tripp made a helpful comment Sunday about the nature of biblical revelation.  The Bible, he said is a "theologically-annotated narrative," a story that comes with "God's notes."  This comment does justice to the narrative structure of the Bible as a whole, while avoiding the trap of thinking only in narrative terms.  The Bible is a special kind of narrative: a theologically-annotated one.  Thus its saving story comes with propositional truths.
