Main Article Content
Over the years, narrative theology has raised multiple objections by evangelicals. Many of these objections are well-founded and deserve attention. Newer research in biblical theology and orality, however, demonstrates that the use of narrative in our theologizing has true transformative potential. Can narrative theology be redeemed so as to be a help, and not a hindrance, in evangelical mission? In this article, the author advances that the dangers of narrative theology ought to be taken seriously, while at the same time, ministry leaders ought also to consider its potential benefits.
