About this book

This book presents the work of leading hermeneutical theorists alongside emerging thinkers, examining the current state of hermeneutics within the Pentecostal tradition. The volume’s contributors present constructive ideas about the future of hermeneutics at the intersection of theology of the Spirit, Pentecostal Christianity, and other disciplines. This collection offers cutting-edge scholarship that engages with and pulls from a broad range of fields and points toward the future of Pneumatological hermeneutics. The volume’s interdisciplinary essays are broken up into four sections: philosophical hermeneutics, biblical-theological hermeneutics, social and cultural hermeneutics, and hermeneutics in the social and physical sciences.

Reviews

“Constructive Pneumatological Hermeneutics in Pentecostal Christianity is an informative work. It does not only summarise many of the hermeneutical debates and discussions to date … but also genuinely seems to broaden the conversation on Pentecostal hermeneutics by allowing the plurality of voices to be heard from various disciplinary perspectives and points of view.” (Simo Frestadius, Journal of the European Pentecostal Theological Association, November, 2017)


“Hermeneutics is partly about interpreting texts, but it also refers to all the multitudinous ways that human beings interpret reality and their place in it.  During the last few decades, hermeneutics has become central to almost all academic study; it has always been essential for religious communities.  Constructive Pneumatological Hermeneutics in Pentecostal Christianity displays the full diversity of hermeneutical views—of the Bible, philosophy, culture(s), and science—that now exist within the Pentecostal movement.  This is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the complexity of the movement or the present state of Pentecostal scholarship.  A brilliant collection of essays.” (Douglas Jacobsen, author of “Thinking in the Spirit: Theologies of the Early Pentecostal Movement”)

“What hath Azusa Street to do with Hans-Georg Gadamer?  These essays offer an answer.  In dialogue with author-based theories of interpretation, this volume expands contemporary Pentecostal hermeneutics by engaging such thinkers as Heidegger, Milbank, and Oliver Davies, authors from Asian, Latino(a), and Black communities, and reflections on empirical and scientific investigation vis-à-vis textual reasoning.  The book traces an ellipse with two foci—the Bible (read multifariously) and human experience (interpreted communally and pluralistically).  While Craig Keener’s Spirit Hermeneutics (2016) takes its cues from the field of biblical scholarship, this volume plumbs the philosophical underpinnings.  It reviews and reconfigures Pentecostal-Charismatic hermeneutical debates from the last forty years, and serves as an essential point of departure for further reflection.” (Michael J. McClymond, Co-Editor of “Wiley-Blackwell Companion to World Christianity”)

“Broad in its scope yet deep in its analysis, this collection of essays—curated by Archer and Oliverio—represents the diversity and quality of the best current scholarship on pneumatological hermeneutical theory. Reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of hermeneutics, the volume addresses issues related to philosophy, theology, biblical studies, anthropology, culture, race and science. The array of topics and methodologies is matched by the diverse group of contributors who represent leading and emerging thinkers within Pentecostal Christianity and valuable dialogue partners from outside the tradition.” (Robby Waddell, Professor of New Testament and Early Christian Literature at Southeastern University, Co-editor of “Pneuma: The Journal of the Society of Pentecostal Studies” and co-editor of “Perspectives in Pentecostal Eschatologies: World without End”)
