The SIFT method of biblical hermeneutics and liturgical preaching has its roots in a theological perspective grounded in the doctrine of creation, in a hermeneutical method grounded in reader perspective, and in a psychological model of individual differences concerning perceiving and evaluating rooted in Jungian psychological type theory. The present study set out to test the empirical bases of the SIFT method among one group of trainee preachers (26 ministry training candidates) and one group of experienced preachers (21 Anglican clergy and readers) who explored the resurrection narratives presented in Mark 16:1-8 and Matthew 28:1-15 within working groups constructed according to psychological type preferences. These data support the psychological principles underpinning the SIFT method of biblical hermeneutics and liturgical preaching.
