If the entire of the Christian existence is to be ruled by means of the “law of love”—the twofold love of God and one’s neighbor—what may perhaps it suggest to read lovingly? that's the query that drives this specified e-book. Jacobs pursues this difficult activity by way of alternating principally theoretical, theological chapters—drawing in particular on Augustine and Mikhail Bakhtin—with interludes that examine specific readers (some genuine, a few fictional) within the act of interpreting. one of the authors thought of are Shakespeare, Cervantes, Nabakov, Nicholson Baker, George Eliot, W.H. Auden, and Dickens. The theoretical framework is elaborated more often than not chapters, whereas a number of counterfeits of or substitutes for really charitable interpretation are thought of within the interludes, which steadily shut in on that infrequent creature, the loving reader. via this doubled approach to research, Jacobs attempts to teach how tough it's to learn charitably—even may still one desire to, which, in fact, few people do. And accurately as the prospect of examining in one of these demeanour is so offputting, one of many covert targets of the ebook is to make it appear either extra believable and extra attractive.
