Who is master(ed)?

In the April'08 issue of First Things (#182) is an essay by R.R. Reno titled The Bible Inside and Out (pp. 13-15), which describes a great chasm in Biblical interpretation.
Modern scholars want to master the Bible.... In contrast, religious readers want to be mastered.
(also quoted here).

Humpty Dumpty says (according to Carroll), "The question is who's to be master" -- as indeed it is. As the old Campus Crusade pictures asked, who is going to be on the throne in your life or mine?

May we choose wisely today.
