Title
A Cognitive Approach to Listening and Action: From Devotion to Conduct
Abstract

Two approaches to Bible reading are discussed within the framework of a theory of cognitive modes. The characteristics of the "€œspectator"€ and "€œparticipant"€ modes of cognition (Harding, 1937; Britton, 1970) are outlined. Certain aspects of a participant and spectator relationship to the biblical text are discussed, and the spectator mode is proposed as that which is most influential in shaping a biblical world and life view.
