The Meanings We Choose: Hermeneutical Ethics, Indetermincy and the Conflict of Interpretations
T&T Clark 2004
The Meanings We Choose is an engagement with responsible Bible reading—Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament texts—for the past, as well as for the present and future. Its stated perspectives are multi-denominational Christian but the implications of such readings go far beyond a specific confessional framework. In the present political climate the aware, responsible “personal” is meaningful for any community, confessedly religious as well as otherwise. While the articles collected in this volume, broadly speaking, can and perhaps should be compartmentalized as ideological criticism, their significance for reading ideologies “different” from their own is more than considerable.
