This article re-examines Archie Lee’s framework of cross-textual reading and offers a new pattern for so-called communitarian cross-textual reading. Our critical assessment of the chosen method will address two subjects. The first is a reflection on the validity of the use of this hermeneutical method, including whether this method is proper, workable, and legitimate concerning the possibilities offered by the Asian context with its multiple religious sacred texts. The second is a reflection on the challenges that appear within this biblical reading approach; challenges this method should face constructively in the Asian context. In conclusion, this article will also try to offer an innovative reading model.
