This paper seeks to identify and discuss some of the foundational principles and practices of biblical interpretation within the Pentecostal movement. It begins by pondering the traditional Pentecostal reaction to the Bible and their understanding of the role of Scripture for the Spirit-filled life, arguing that Pentecostals instinctively read the Bible to meet God in the text, interpreting Scripture 'by encounter more than exegesis'. The second half of the essay explores how such a subjectivist, phenomenological model of reading can and does operate, and considers how the very nature of the Bible as a 'generative' and regenerative text invites personal and individual application, noting that the Pentecostal emphasis on community experience serves as a useful rejoinder to any egocentric isolationism and emphasising the importance for Pentecostals of action in response to our reading.
