In this article the author investigates the views of fundamentalism and criticism as far as the doctrine of Scripture is concerned. In this context, special attention is given to the doctrine of the resurrection of the body. By way of a prelude the views of the great church father, Augustine, who influenced Western theology fundamentally, are scrutinised. The author arrives at the conclusion that elements of criticism can be discovered in the fundamentalist stance while the critical option can be blamed for its (although reduced) fundamentalistic approach.

In hierdie artikel ondersoek die outeur die standpunte van die fundamentalisme en kritisisme ten opsigte van Skrifbeskouing. Besondere aandag is in hierdie verband aan die leer oor die liggaamlike opstanding gegee. By wyse van inleiding is ook ondersoek ingestel na die beskouings van die groot kerkvader Augustinus, wat so 'n fundamentele invloed op die Westerse teologie uitgeoefen het. Die outeur kom tot die konklusie dat elemente van kritisisme in die fundamentalistiese benadering terug te vind is, terwyl die kritiese opsie weer vir sy (gereduseerde) fundamentalistiese benadering geblameer word.
