Again, the issue comes down to what we might call the epistemic stance which we take toward the world. Are we expecting to come face to face today with a world which is at the deepest level personal and therefore communicative? Or are we expecting to be the only subjects in a world of objects? Theologically, this latter seems to be an expression of a sinful mindset. If the world is empty of meaning until I arrive at it - if Scripture is just a text until I interpret it - then I am king in my own universe. And I can express that even as I come to read the Bible.
The universe presented to us in the gospel is charged with personality; the Scripture given to us is filled with living communication. Are you listening?
