8 March-12 April
10:30-12.00 noon We will look at four contemporary biblical methodologies: narrative, canonical, rhetorical and liberationist. Each approach has its own set of questions and criteria, leading to new interpretations. The strengths and weaknesses of each approach will be evaluated. Guided reading will be provided in the handouts. An introduction to the traditional method of Lectio Divina will round off the module.
