This essay explores what happens to such ideas as scriptural inspiration and truth in a postmodern context. While postmodernism insists on the textuality of the world, it must also allow for what comes to us from beyond and between the texts we inhabit, as well as from within them. It is precisely because we are within textuality that we can see beyond it.
