Provoking the Gospel of John | A Storyteller’s Commentary - Years A, B, and C (Swanson)
Provoking the Gospel of John, Years A, B, and C, the final volume in the Provoking the Gospel storytelling commentary series, spurs efforts to provoke pastoral leaders and religious educators to look for new and lively readings of John, and challenges them to experiment with interpretive tools such as embodied ensemble exploration.
The book, like the series volumes on the Synoptic Gospels, is composed of three chapters plus the author’s provocative translation of the Gospel of John. An appendix identifies the Revised Common Lectionary texts in story order. It also includes a companion DVD with illustrations of the process of script analysis and the performance that lies behind this way of storytelling.
