VAN WYK, J.H.. On the Bible, Bible reading and ethics: In debate with Gerrie Snyman. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.4, pp.685-708. ISSN 2305-0853.

Without doubt Gerrie Snyman produced a book which attests to an existential grappling with questions about Christian faith, the Bible and understanding of the Bible. The author refers to apartheid, women in office and homosexual persons as examples of misunderstanding and misuse of the Bible. He advocates a reinterpretation of the Bible in which the authors (of the Bible), the context of the authors, the context of the first and the context of the modern readers be taken into account fully. The classic way of reading the Bible is outdated and should be exchanged for a more critical approach to the Bible. The author of this article investigates the question as to whether Snyman is not guilty of a naïve form of rationalism and relationism.
