Text and Psyche: Experiencing Scripture Today

Leave a comment

Brown, S. (1998). Text and Psyche: Experiencing Scripture Today. New York: Continuum.

Schuyler Brown develops a model of “biblical empirics,” experiential reading of the Bible. In a deceptively slim volume he explores a wide range of subjects from Gnostic interpretation to Jungian psychology to reader-response criticism and suggests an approach to reading the Bible that can be truly transformative.

This book was featured in a session of the Psychology and Biblical Studies Section at the Annual Meeting in Orlando in November 1998.
