'We live in an age when much doubt has been cast concerning the meaning of texts. This has direct application to our confidence in and practice of handling the Scriptures. Ben Sargent's paper provides an excellent corrective. It is carefully argued, clearly written and immensely useful'
Revd William Taylor
About the book:
If you are reading this, it is because you expect it to have meaning. You will be making assumptions about its author based on the content and context; you will be interpreting what you read in the light of your own prejudices and experience and the conditioning of your cultural surroundings. Does it matter what the author intended? Does an unintentional message have validity? Is there a single meaning of the text, or one on which we should all agree?
