Jeannine Brown, an expert on the Gospels and a popular writer and teacher, shows how a narrative approach illuminates each of the Gospels. This book offers a corrective to tendencies to read the Gospels piecemeal, one story at a time. Brown provides hands-on tools and perspectives to help students interpret the Gospels as whole stories.
The Gospels as Stories takes four key areas of narrative analysis and applies them to the four Gospels. The book is filled with numerous examples that show how narrative criticism brings the text to life, and it includes pedagogical helps, such as visual aids, sidebars, and further reading suggestions, making it an ideal supplementary textbook that will complement any standard introduction.
