Learning to Read - How the Gospel of John Teaches Us to Read Iconically
C.S. Lewis advises people to read at least one or two old books between any modern one because old books expose where our thinking mirrors our times. And, while we hate to admit it, we are all products of our culture to some extent. It affects our habits, our thinking, and even how we read. In this talk, Brian Phillips takes a close look at the Gospel of John as a model for how to read "iconically" – seeing the images, hearing the echoes, and noting the connections John makes with the whole of Scripture.
