In recent decades, two seemingly unconnected issues have been become prominent in the Christian world. In theological circles, hermeneutics, the theory of interpretations, at a popular level, a renewed interest in the person and work of the Holy Spirit. In his fascinating new study, Paul Brown connects the two. He notes how little scholarly work has been done on the Holy Spirit., pointing out the few cursory references to the Holy Spirit's role in interpreting in most current hermeneutical studies. He works through the New Testament, considering each reference to the Holy Spirit thouroughly and shows that any study of hermeneutics must include serious consideration of the work of the Holy Spirit in assisting us to understand the work of the Holy Spirit.
