A great number of Pentecostal academics have embraced a postmodernist paradigm for reading the Bible. This article reveals fatal flaws in three prominent arguments favoring a postmodernist hermeneutic: (1) that the postmodernist worldview is supported by quantum physics, (2) that the author's intention (for various reasons) is irrelevant, and (3) that the concept of truth and the unattainability of a purely objective viewpoint are obstacles for the historical-critical project. These arguments are examined as they appear within Pentecostal writings.
