Vern Sheridan Poythress

This is the first book i've read by Poythress, and if i haven't heard so much good about him it would be the last, as is i will try to find another to see if his writings match up to his reputation.

It is shallow and disappointing. It starts what ought to be a dynamite discussion then jumps to something else just when it gets interesting. As a quick introduction to a wide set of ideas it is good, well written, engaging, interesting. As a carefully reasoned look at how Kuhn's philosophy of science can help theologians in designing and using a more scientific hermeneutic it is just too choppy and shallow to be in demand as a first read. It is more tantalizing then substantial, more a shadow then a ground breaking work to lead conservative Christians into an understanding of how Scriptural interpretation can grow by being in contact with modern science and philosophy of science. Maybe it is just too short to cover the subject properly....*grin*

but it is not a bad start, worthwhile the time to read, leaves lots more unasked but potential then it answers.
I don't regret reading it, but sadden not to know where to go to seek more similiar books. It's a good topic and deserves more from his pen.
