Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a letter written by Anne Marijke Spijkerboer to Frances Klopper. The letter is in response to Frances's paper Quo Vadis, Feminist Scholarship? Reflections from the Threshold between African and European Biblical Exegesis". Anne says that she noticed the approach of the New Criticism within the South African context served as a method to concentrate safely on the text and not to be obliged to investigate the context of either the writer or the reader. The letter ends with Anne stating that there was no such thing as one method which could be a guarantee for reading from the perspective of Women. She says that there can thus be only one conclusion: no method is a guarantee for any outcome; outcomes depend on the biblical scholar herself.

Keywords: African biblical exegesis; Anne Marijke Spijkerboer; European biblical exegesis; Frances Klopper; New Criticism
