In Insights from Filmmaking for Analyzing Biblical Narrative Gary Yamasaki develops an innovative approach to biblical narrative, exploring the way stories are treated in filmmaking, and using that as a model for analyzing biblical stories. In our culture, the voluminous exposure we have to movies has resulted in our being conditioned to experience cinematic stories in a particular manner: for example, seeing them as events rather than objects, and the story worlds of movies as distinct from the real world. However, biblical stories are not typically viewed through this cinematic-story lens, making our analysis of biblical narrative out of step with what has become our natural mode of experiencing stories. This book demonstrates how fresh interpretive insights emerge when we read biblical stories like we watch movies.
About the Series
Reading the Bible in the 21st Century introduces contemporary biblical scholarship to students and other interested readers, showing how each of the various approaches current today is a strategic interaction with the biblical text, and inviting the reader to try it out. Each approach has its own purposes, distinct advantages, and particular limitations; each approach springs from specific assumptions or intuitions about the text, or from a particular vantage point in our world. The series has two component parts: Insights and Strategies.
Each volume in the Insights series describes what we've learned from men and women who have changed the way we all may read the Bible by sharing the way they read it from their distinctive point of view.
The goal of the Strategies series is to pull together the variety of methods and perspectives at play in contemporary Bible interpretation, and on developing the skill and discernment to apply those methods sensitively and responsibly.
