Why is Spirit-guided Exegesis helpful?
Because the Holy Spirit guides us into the truth in exegesis in the same way he guides us into all truth, Spirit-guided Exegesis is helpful to those who seek to learn more about how the Holy Spirit guides us into truth and what we must do to be guided. The discussion and example in this book are a valuable addition to The Guiding Into Truth Work of the Holy Spirit.
Spirit-guided Exegesis shares how the Holy Spirit guides us into truth and our role being guided in the context of exegesis. Because of this, this book is also helpful to those who seek the Holy Spirit’s help in the process of exegesis.
Spirit-guided Exegesis will contribute answers to the following questions posed by Dr. John W. Wyckoff in his book Pneuma and Logos:
What, if any, is the relationship of the Holy Spirit to biblical hermeneutics?
If the Holy Spirit is involved, what is the nature and content of knowledge gained as a result of this involvement?
Who qualifies as a Spirit-guided interpreter: with whom does the Holy Spirit work in the process?
How does the Holy Spirit work with the interpreter; what is the nature of the Spirit’s role in relationship to that of the human interpreter?
What is the human role in interpretation when the Holy Spirit is involved?
