Abstract:

This paper explores biblical storytelling from the perspective of the storyteller. It builds on my personal observation that there are necessary components in performance that make it an accessible and well-grounded spiritual practice which has a deep impact on the performer. Beginning from a pastoral concern with the way the Bible is cited as authoritative in public moral arguments and the extent to which much of the culture is unfamiliar with actual Bible content, I make a case for biblical storytelling as a theologically sound and interesting way to promote familiarity with Scripture . In the course of the paper I introduce a variety of critical and hermeneutical methods which support preparation of a biblical story for performance (chapter three). I describe my own experience with biblical storytelling as a spiritual discipline (chapters one and two) and the process of forming a group, introducing them to storytelling, and coaching them, for the purpose of this research. Finally, I reflect on the project itself, and how my initial hunches have been supported, strengthened, and clarified through this human subject research. Because of the time spent with the text, the focused exegesis for preparation, the interpretation required for performance, and the relationships that are formed between tellers, audience, and God, biblical storytelling is a powerful and transformative spiritual discipline. Since biblical storytelling is a multi-sensory discipline, a video component is included in this report, available on the accompanying DVD (print version) or on the internet (see Appendix E for details).
