The Post-modern Way

The post-modern way is to look at scripture as writings of different persons at different times addressing their particular circumstances and needs. Disciplines such as source criticism, historical criticism, textual criticism, exegesis and hermenutics are employed in the study of scripture. Scriptures are considered to be relative to their intended audience and need to be made relevant to their intended audience today. Another process, is to view the narrative world of scripture and understand the reality it depicts and look at how things are “true or real” within that narrative world. It’s the scholarly, academic approach which does not rule out faith. Beliefs may change, but faith remains strong.
