B&H Academic Interpreting Gospel Narratives: Scenes, People, and Theology

The night of his arrest, Jesus spoke to his close followers about two testimonies that would focus on Him: the work of the Holy Spirit and their own personal accounts. Interpreting Gospel Narratives looks exclusively at the testimony given in the Gospels, exploring several ways to enrich our Gospel exegesis so that we may see Christ as clearly as possible.

Timothy Wiarda's book is primarily how-to, discussing questions of exegetical method that will help interpreters and expositors work with Gospel texts. He also discusses methodological questions relating specifically to the narrative material in the Gospels and focuses in on other fine details-the portrayal of individual characters, descriptive elements, the relation between theology and story, and more.

At times we all need a reminder of how to carefully peruse the text. This is as good a refresher as you will get. At the same time it introduces a subtlety to interpretation that most of us lack. Consequently, for those who love Scripture this work is a blessing. Clarity, depth, insight - these are all hallmarks of this work that make it an essential for those working with the Gospels. This is as good a "how-to" book as you will find.
