Reading Scripture Through Other Eyes

Click here Walter Brueggemann at Trinity Institute to see one of the lectures at this year's Trinity Institute, on the topic of "Reading Scripture Through Other Eyes." Well worth a watch! As a pastor I am particularly in agreement that there is a parallel process between moving from a naive reading of Scripture through historical criticism to a second naivete on the one hand and the spiritual journey toward growing into the full stature of Christ on the other. I also think he's right in his answer to the first question posed at the end: this is not intellectualism but "close reading" that can be taught to people, and be transformative for people on both the so-called left and the so-called right.
