God-Centered Biblical Interpretation

by Vern S. Poythress
 
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.

Editorial Reviews

John M. Frame
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.
