N.T. Wright discusses the perceived slippery subject of narrative with Ken Meyers in a forthcoming Mars Hill Journal interview. Here’s a teaser:
But I think an awful lot of people, without even realizing it, live in a narrative….
Every time somebody says, ‘But now that we live in the modern world,’ dot, dot, dot. [sic] That’s what’s going on; they’re invoking that narrative. So I suspect that part of the problem is that controlling narrative is so big that it has driven many Christians, preachers, pastors, etc. to de-narrate their own faith and to leave it as sort of chunky little clumps of dogma.
