Publisher's Description

Theologically and pastorally profound, this study of biblical hermeneutics builds on Trinitarian presuppositions, while exposing the idols that lead interpretation astray. Poythress emphasizes the interpreter's spiritual qualifications along with linguistic principles.

Author Bio

Vern S. Poythress (MLitt, University of Cambridge; PhD, Harvard University; DTh, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa) is Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He is also the author of Understanding Dispensationalists; Science and Hermeneutics; Implications of Scientific Method for Biblical Interpretation; Symphonic Theology; The Validity of Multiple Perspectives in Theology; and The Shadow of Christ in the Law of Moses.

Editorial Reviews

Poythress has been teaching hermeneutics for over twenty years and has developed some wonderful, fresh approaches, which are at the same time deeply biblical. Christians confess that God is Lord of all of life, but we often ignore him, ironically enough, even in the area of Bible interpretation, where we should be especially eager to hear his voice. But what does God say about Bible interpretation? This book will tell you. It traces the whole activity back to the depths of God’s trinitarian existence. I can’t think of any book I would recommend more highly to the serious student of Scripture. It tells you what is most important about interpreting the Bible.

    Bruce Wallace
    This little book on interpretation is valuable in that it shows a freedom to think where much of us who attend church regularly have become lazy and are used to having things laid out for us with no work involved. Poythress stimulates godly thinking, which is a good thing for people who want to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and understand His Word.
