FRANCIS, Leslie J.. Five loaves and two fishes: an empirical study in psychological type and biblical hermeneutics among Anglican preachers. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.1, pp.1-5. ISSN 2072-8050.

The sensing, intuition, feeling and thinking (SIFT) method of biblical hermeneutics and liturgical preaching has its roots in three fields: a theology of individual differences situated within the doctrine of creation, an application of Jungian psychological-type theory and empirical observation. The present study tested the empirical foundations for this method by examining the psychological-type profile of two groups of Anglican preachers (24 licensed readers in England and 22 licensed clergy in Northern Ireland) and by examining the content of their preaching according to their dominant psychological-type preferences. These data provided further support for the psychological principles underpinning the SIFT method of biblical hermeneutics and liturgical preaching.
