Cover for Three’s A Crowd: Pentecostalism, Hermeneutics and the Old Testament

Three's a Crowd brings together the three dialogue partners of Pentecostalism, hermeneutics, and the Old Testament. Previous attempts by Pentecostal academics to define a distinctive Pentecostal hermeneutic have focused on issues and application to the New Testament, consequently estranging the Old Testament from the conversation. This book engages the hermeneutical practices of Pentecostal and Charismatic groups in reading the Old Testament in ways that are representative, while critical, of their movement's ideological bases and visions. While the issue of understanding and developing a viable Pentecostal hermeneutic has continued to be debated within the academic journals of the community for over a decade, most discussion has focused on the prescription of ideals rather than on the actual practice of the contemporary community. By examining the reading practices of the Pentecostal and Charismatic community, this book suggests a unique and rounded reading method that maintains the strengths of Pentecostal reading practices while addressing their inherent weaknesses. In this way, the voices of the three dialogue partners emerge in a mutual fellowship that engages both the needs of the Pentecostal community and informs the wider ecumenical dialogue.
