Summary

This is a ''how-to'' and ''why-to'' book about exploratory ensemble biblical storytelling that grew out of Swanson's six years of work on the Provoking the Gospel Project, a collaborative venture involving a multigenerational team of storytellers. From its first trial as a teaching tool, through the early experiments with a pioneering team of storytellers, workshops, performances, and resistant students as well as receptive ones, Swanson discovered that this way of working with biblical stories led him deeper and deeper into an exploration of a surprisingly powerful interpretive method. He shares with those in ministry or preparing for a religious vocation a method that encourages students to discover themselves and their world in biblical texts.
