Item Description...
This is a "how-to" and "why-to" book about exploratory ensemble biblical storytelling that grew out of Swanson's six years of work on the Provoking the Gospel Project, a collaborative venture involving a multigenerational team of storytellers. From its first trial as a teaching tool, through the early experiments with a pioneering team of storytellers, workshops, performances, and resistant students as well as receptive ones, Swanson discovered that this way of working with biblical stories led him deeper and deeper into an exploration of a surprisingly powerful interpretive method. He shares with those in ministry or preparing for a religious vocation a method that encourages students to discover themselves and their world in biblical texts.

Looking at the Gospel in a New Light  Apr 10, 2004
As a person who has seen Swanson's storytelling group, I really felt he had a daunting task in trying to explain the way they work and why, and why it's important, on paper. He has succeeded. "Provoking the Gospel" is an excellent source for discovering the tensions in the characters and stories in the Gospels of Jesus through drama. Swanson senses that it is a hard thing that he is asking people to do, to get up and try to embody sacred text -- but he gives you such simple ways to start and insists that things will "happen", and I believe him. The chapter on making "mistakes" is especially handy -- the idea that you have to screw up in order to do things right -- is a notion anyone who's ever forgotten a line or never been on stage before can embrace. I sincerely hope this book inspires regular folks everywhere to get out and get into their Bibles -- and "crack open" the stories of Christ that we take for granted.
