Theological hermeneutics

Understanding the world in the encounter with God
WithL. William Oliverio

This chapter details the Pentecostal turn to theological hermeneutics and approaches to understanding, noting the recent development of explicit Pentecostal theological hermeneutics, before moving through implicit historical developments and on to contemporary approaches among Pentecostal theological hermeneutics in global contexts. Considering Pentecostal theologies as theological hermeneutics produces insightful understanding for considering and constructing these interpretive approaches since the category addresses powerful underlying considerations for interpretation of God, human selves, and the world.
