Bi­ble mes­sage

The Church of England - - NEWS -

Sir, May I take is­sue please with Alan Minchin (Letters, 14 March) over his ap­par­ent an­tithe­sis of ex­e­ge­sis (OK) and eise­ge­sis (not OK)? Can the Bi­ble be the only book on earth of which it is not per­mit­ted to ex­am­ine the ‘in­ter­nal ev­i­dence’ as well as the writ­ten words (or, to put it crudely, to ‘read be­tween the lines’)? What is not said can of­ten be as sig­nif­i­cant as the words them­selves.

JM Hughes,

Heaton Mersey, Stock­port
