Dr. Wyckoff's Book on Holy Spirit and Hermeneutics Released
Wipf and Stock Publishers just released SAGU professor Dr. John Wyckoff’s book entitled “Pneuma and Logos: The Role of the Spirit in Biblical Hermeneutics.” The book is available on the publisher’s website at www.wipfandstock.com and through Amazon.
“Pneuma and Logos” discusses issues related to an idea commonly referred to as “The Doctrine of the Illumination of Scripture.” That is, the book discusses the role of the Holy Spirit in the understanding of Scripture.
The book briefly surveys both past and contemporary thought on the subject. It then suggests how the Holy Spirit’s role might be conceptualized. Since this conceptualization is necessarily metaphorical, various models are presented as vehicles for furthering discourse on the subject. Finally, it attempts to describe the results of the Holy Spirit’s activity of illumination and suggests areas for further study.
“In his book, ‘Pneuma and Logos: The Role of the Spirit in Biblical Hermeneutics,’ John Wyckoff addresses an extraordinarily difficult question,” commented Robert P. Menzies. “His years of teaching and love for the Word of God shine through in this remarkably clear and concise book. Wyckoff provides historical perspective, highlights the key issues, and analyzes contemporary models.”
According to Menzies, the book is “highly readable and stimulating. I warmly recommend it to anyone interested in serious study of the Bible.”
