I can then go on to say with Dante that "God is the Book of the universe." After all, the O.T. gives mention of Holy Wisdom having existed with God before creation and at the act of creation. And coming down from heaven to aid good men.
The situation is that in accepting the N.T. or parts thereof I do not have to give up the O.T.; they are not mutually exclusive. I can accept the gospels and not Paul if I so wish.
