Forces of Change and Scriptural Interpretation (PerSpectives 12)

  1. 1. CHANGE FORCES Van de Ven & Poole, 1995
  2. 2. Overview of Change ForcesUpon viewing scriptural events from the perspective ofchange forces that transpired during a time period, you gain adeeper understanding of Scripture by peeling back everydaycircumstances. Theorists Van de Ven and Poole, say thatIt is the interplay between different perspectives that helps one gain a more comprehensive understanding of organizational life, because any one theoretical perspective invariably offers only a partial account of a complex phenomenon (1995).
  3. 3. Imagine looking at fibers through a microscope to identify thecontents of a particular sample. Without a system ofclassification, you see a conglomeration of materials – amishmash. On the other hand, if you have a way to sortthrough the materials or markers to guide recognition, thenpatterns emerge that lead to interpretation. Along these lines,Van de Ven and Poole present four basic types of changeforce models that help explain historical development of anorganization: life-cycle, teleological, dialectical, andevolutionary.
