Biblical Reading and Critical Reading: How Do They Inform Each Other in Interpreting the Text?
This article presents a comparative study of two reading approaches: biblical reading and critical reading. Three inquiry questions are addressed by the study: (1) what are the similarities and differences between biblical reading and critical reading? (2) are biblical reading and critical reading antithetical to each other or can they supplement each other? and (3) what do biblical reading and critical reading imply for reading instruction? The purpose of the study is to demonstrate how these two seemingly opposed reading approaches can inform each other in interpreting the text.
