#1 - Empirical Hermeneutics, Interculturality, and Holy Scripture
The practice at the heart of this research consists of bringing small groups together from all continents who read the same Bible story at the same time and discuss the meaning of the story with each other. Groups of desplazados in Colombia read with groups of Christians from Indonesia, groups of dalits from India with Cuban groups, Korean students with Nicaraguan Pentecostals, and Dutch groups with Ghanaian or Filipino groups. Groups can also read with each other within the same region or country; reading groups of Arabic or Ghanaian Christians in the Netherlands also can be connected with groups from Dutch mainline churches.
The reading experiences of these groups are the basic material of the formulation of theory. While Holy Scripture—not only the Qur’an!—is at this time often associated with terror and destruction, and while it is often suggested that a one-to-one relationship exists between sacred texts and human actions, we actually know almost nothing about that relationship.
