In this book a group of international scholars explains in detail “how John works,” that is, how the author uses a variety of narrative strategies to tell his story in a compelling manner. More than a commentary, How John Works offers a glimpse at the way an ancient author created and used narrative features such as genre, character, style, persuasion, and even time and space to shape a dramatic story of the life of Jesus. The essays in this volume not only explore fifteen features of story design found in the Gospel of John; they also can be used as starting points for the study of other gospels and texts. The contributors are Harold W. Attridge, Rekha M. Chennattu, Douglas Estes, Charles E. Hill, Edward W. Klink III, Kasper Bro Larsen, Dorothy A. Lee, Susanne Luther, Francis J. Moloney, Alicia D. Myers, Dan Nässelqvist, James L. Resseguie, Ruth Sheridan, Christopher W. Skinner, and Mark W. G. Stibbe.
