This study by a group of biblical scholars deals with two tenets arising out of our post-modern intellectual environment: Firstly, that biblical texts are typically open to competing reasonable interpretations, where `competing' means `mutually exclusive' and `reasonable' means `plausible/defensible' on the basis of a rigorous application of chosen methods; and secondly that this openness of texts to competing construals of meaning makes interpreters morally and theologically responsible for the meanings they choose in using the Bible in the life and faith of the church.

The Meanings We Choose is an engagement with responsible bible reading-Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament texts-for the past as well as for the present and future. Its stated perspectives are multi-denominational Christian but the implications of such readings go far beyond a specific confessional framework. In the present political climate the aware, responsible "personal" is meaningful for any community, confessedly religious as well as otherwise. While the articles collected in this volume, broadly speaking, can and perhaps should be compartmentalized as ideological criticism, their significance for reading ideologies "different" from their own is more than considerable.
