Vern S. Poythress on Reading the Word of God

Vern S. Poythress, Reading the Word of God in the Presence of God: A Handbook for Biblical Interpretation (Wheaton: Crossway, 2016), 463pp., 978-1-4335-4325-8.

Due to the generosity of someone somewhere, a newish book by Vern Poythress on biblical interpretation has been made freely available in its entirety. Here’s some of the blurb:

‘Every time we read the Bible, we’re reading in the presence of God. How should this incredible truth shape how we read?

‘Moving quickly from principle to practice, Vern Poythress helps us rethink how we interpret the Bible by showing us the implications of entering into God’s presence as we study. This handbook outlines distinct steps for practicing faithful biblical interpretation by focusing on our fellowship with the God who speaks to us through his Word.’

The book is available here as a pdf.
