Narrative Theology is still with us, to the delight of some and to the chagrin of others. 'Why Narrative?A is in reprint because it represents what is still a very important question. This diverse collection of essays on narrative theology has proven very useful in university and seminary theology classes. It is also of great use as a primer for the educated layperson or church study group. Jones and Hauerwas have done an excellent job of selecting representative essays that deal with appeals to narrative in areas such as personal identity and human action, biblical hermeneutics, epistemology, and theological and ethical method.Preface. This book began in a class and we hope that it will be useful for classes. ... Therefore, we began to plan an anthology that would include the best essays in narrative and theology we could find. ... We are particularly grateful to Andrew Adam, Steve Long, and Jeff Powell for the perceptiveness of their comments.
