"Quietly, but irreversibly, the categories of critical theology have shifted and continue to shift. Not long ago, 'narrative' was so flimsy and vulnerable. Almost without our noticing, 'narrative and theology' are now joined together in a way that recharacterizes both terms...
"The contributions to and advances in this fundamental shift are the work of a limited number of scholars, but their work is scattered in too many journals and books. This marvelous collection brings many of the most important resources together in one place.... The editors have rendered us a singular service in making these materials so conveniently available. I anticipate that the book will become both a primary tool for much teaching and a crucial point of reference for further work."
