The purpose of this paper is to outline a Seventh-day Adventist worldview in the light of literary theories and the work of other Christian scholars, with particular reference to the interpretation of the Bible. A glance at the development of literary theory will give a context in which to understand traditional Christian thought and the challenges of literary theory.
