How do we read Scripture? Is there an agreed 'Anglican' way of interpreting the Bible? Are there any established principles that guide us in how we may understand the meaning of texts that currently divide Anglicans, especially in areas of sexuality and authority? And how may we respond to those who accuse the churhces of frustrating the proclamations of the good news by the contradictions in their teaching about the Bible? This chapter seeks to encourage the continuing exploration of some basic relevant questions.
