VAN TREEK, Mike. Reading act and theology: Essay on the Reader in Genesis 1-3. Aisthesis [online]. 2012, n.52, pp.149-174. ISSN 0718-7181.

In order to examine in depth some connections between theology and the concept of «Word of God», we analyse the reader's response in some selected pages of the biblical book of Genesis. We suppose that fiction results in the knowledge of reality and that is a valid framework to make theology. The narrator leads the narrative to take stance on the virtual world unfolded in front of reader. By doing so, the narrator invites the readers to share the God's points of view and to review his own theological and anthropological beliefs. The active reader of the Genesis exercises a very important job both in critical theology and critical thinking thanks to a cleverness narrative art.

Keywords : Narratology; Arrangement; Fiction; Alterity; Otherness; Hebrew Bible.
