How John Works: Storytelling in the Fourth Gospel

Edited by Douglas Estes & Ruth Sheridan

(SBL, 2016)

How John WorksIn this book, a group of international scholars go in detail to explain how the author of the Gospel of John uses a variety of narrative strategies to best tell his story. More than a commentary, this book offers a glimpse at the way an ancient author created and used narrative features such as genre, character, style, persuasion, and even time and space to shape a dramatic story of the life of Jesus.

  • An introduction to the Fourth Gospel through its narrative features and dynamics
  • Fifteen features of story design that comprise the Gospel of John
  • Short, targeted essays about how John works that can be used as starting points for the study of other Gospels/texts

Our Purpose

  • To promote Performance Criticism
  • To report developments in this emerging discipline
  • To be a clearinghouse for resources
  • To provide a network for scholars and performers
