Beware the Self-Sustaining Hermeneutical Discourse

A good (if overworked) caution:

Anyone abreast of the mass of hermeneutical discussion operating across the theological subdisciplines at the beginning of the twenty-first century will be aware of an odd feature of that discussion: it is easy to allow the hermeneutical discussion to become a self-sustaining discourse increasingly distanced from the actual tasks and practices of reading the particular texts that go to make up the Christian Bible.
–Richard Briggs, The Virtuous Reader, 35.

Other Blogging Haunts:

I sporadically blog at Canon Studies about (you guessed it), "Canon Studies."

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
