SNYMAN, G.F.. "To read the Bible sensitively and in its richness" - in conversation with Amie van Wyk. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.3-4, pp.759-790. ISSN 2305-0853.
In response to Prof. J.H. van Wyk's review of Gerrie Snyman's book "Om die Bybel anders te lees: 'n etiek van Bybellees" (2007) the authorproposes that the issue is contextuality, neccesitated the moment the human aspect rears its head in the process of reading the Bible. Contextuality is juxtaposed with an objectivist approach. The article also inquires into aspects of rationality, Pneumatology, Christology and the theological justification of apartheid together with the theological justification of keeping women in the RCSA from the offices of elder and minister as a test case for reading the Bible differently.
Keywords : contextuality; hermeneutics; objectivism; positivist law; rhetorics; authority of Scripture.
