In this state of the art study, Kenneth J. Archer provides the most detailed and comprehensive analysis of Pentecostal Hermeneutics to date. Archer identifies the hermeneutical filter through which the Pentecostal story and identity is understood and meaning is made, with specific attention given to the Central Narrative Convictions of the Pentecostal Community. The model here proposed builds upon the tridactic negotiation for meaning that draws upon the biblical text, the Pentecostal community, and the role of the Holy Spirit. Archer offers a significant paradigm for all those interested in the topic of Pentecostal hermeneutics and its significance for contemporary belief and practice. 'Archer has provided . . . an insightful proposal for the kind of Pentecostal hermeneutic that is appropriate to our contemporary context.' (R. Bauckham, Prof of NT, Univ of St Andrew's, UK).

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Dr Archer provides the reader with a scholarly portrayal of Pentecostalism. He examines the historical chronology of modern Pentecostalism and provides a theological bridge between today's Pentecostal Christianity and that of the Early Church.
Dr Archer gives a brief overview of the paradigm shift that occurred within the system of the universities of America from the British-American model of thought to that of the German model of intellectual analysis. This resulted in a shifting away from the "Common Sense Realism" model of thought to the "German Scientific Model" of intellectual analysis which consequently gave rise to theological reductionism in scripture interpretation.
Dr Archer gives a brilliant defense of Pentecostal Christianity against the "Social Deprivation Theory." He also points out shortcomings of the "Historical Critical Method" of scripture interpretation.
This has been a valuable addition to my library and worth the read I recommend it to any reader thanks
