Reading >>> Research = Oxgyen >>>Breathing

February 18, 2008

I suggested in the second lecture of The Preaching Course that the second basic component of research is reading. My introductory comment ran something like this:

If I may state the obvious: research of any text is built upon reading the text. We cannot re-search the passage unless we’re patiently reading it. As indispensible as oxygen is to breathing, so is reading to research – you require one to do the other. Therefore one of the skills we must begin to try and master is simply close, careful and critical reading of the text.
