Description: Reflecting on the twenty-fifth anniversary of Alan Culpepper's milestone "Anatomy of the Fourth Gospel" (1983), "Anatomies of Narrative Criticism" explores current trends in the study of the Gospel of John as literature. The contributors to the volume represent a wide range of methodological approaches that all explore ways that contemporary readers generate meaning from John's story of Jesus. The book includes an introduction to narrative-critical studies of John; essays on specific themes and passages that focus on interpretation of the text, history of research, hermeneutical approaches, and future trends in research; and, a reflective response from Alan Culpepper. Overall, the book seeks to trace the history and project the future of the study of the Bible as narrative.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Johannine Literature, John, Literature
