Synopsis: Scholars interested in narrative critical / narratological analyses of the Old Testament and New Testament Bible will welcome this extensive practical study that discusses all aspects that should be evaluated when a narratological analysis is undertaken. All the relevant aspects, such as the relationship between narrator and narratee, plot development, characterization, temporal relationships, focalization, and setting are discussed in such a way that it is easy to follow, yet of high academic quality. Each aspect is illustrated by several examples from the Old Testament and New Testament. At the end of each chapter is a bibliography directing readers to more technical books/articles on the subject. Author Biography: Francois Tolmie is Dean of the Faculty of Theology and Professor in New Testament at the University of the Free State, South Africa. Other books published by him: Jesus' Farewell to the Disciples: John 13:1--17:26 in Narratological Perspective (Brill, 1995) and Persuading the Galatians: A Text-Centred Rhetorical Analysis of a Pauline Letter (Mohr-Siebeck, 2005).
