New From Vern Poythress!

51tyut9onul-_sx331_bo1204203200_I preordered this back in October and am excited to see that it is shipping from Amazon next week! I have always been impressed with Poythress’s approach. He’s a careful biblical scholar, but not one to compromise on theological convictions under the guise of “academic rigor.” In fact, his close attention to both the human and the divine authors of Scripture makes his approach more robustly academic than many approaches that claim to be neutral and/or scientific. For a good illustration, see his 2014 article in JETS entitled “Dispensing with Merely Human Meaning: Gains and Losses from Focusing on the Human Author, Illustrated by Zephaiah 1:2-3.” [Click here for link]
