SNYMAN, G.F.. An ethics of reading the Bible and a hermeneutics of vulnerability. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.2-3, pp. 259-282. ISSN 1018-6441.

On the basis of Van der Walt's (2008) proposal regarding an approach towards Scripture, the author proposes a hermeneutics of vulnerability that aims to facilitate a Bible reading process "with" people and no longer "for" people. Such a hermeneutic will enable the Bible reader to take into account the effect a particular explanation of Scripture will have on people for which he or she need to take responsibility. In the ensuing discussion, firstly, the author looks at the way people are being made destitute by a particular reading of the Bible, and secondly, discusses how a hermeneutic of vulnerability reveals such a vulnerableness.
