... is metaphorical. But, you are not a typical Christian. I'd say that nearly 100% of Evangelicals believe the Bible is entirely literally true.

Meaning, Evangelical Protestants don't believe the Bible is metaphorical. It is word-for-word literally true. It says that Balaam's donkey spoke in a human language? Evangelicals believe it actually happened that way. The Bible says that when a man dies, his widow MUST marry his brother? Evangelicals think that's ACTUALLY what God wants. But, of course, they will have plenty of reasons why those kind of laws don't apply to them.

You'll notice that the parts that Evangelicals don't want to be true will get avoided like the plague, or rationalized via irrational means.
