Editorial: Following Good Leads

  • Nancy J Moules University of Calgary

Abstract

This is the fifth and final editorial to accompany the last installment of John Williamson's The Case of the Disappearing/Appearing Slow Learner: An Interpretive Mystery. In this editorial, I talk about the intention of publishing Williamson's work in this way as a unique example of applied hermeneutic research. I also discuss what the work teaches us in hermeneutic research: the importance of following good leads.
